Spirit AeroSystems announced that it is laying off approximately 2,800 employees at its Wichita, Kansas facility. They plan smaller workforce reductions later this month at Tulsa and McAlester plants, a news release said.

Spirit officials said the layoffs are because of the 737 MAX production suspension and ongoing uncertainty of when production will resume.
