WASHINGTON (AP) -- A strong coalition of establishment-backed Republicans and House Democrats voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to revive the Export-Import Bank, dealing a defeat to tea party conservatives and Speaker-to-be Paul Ryan. The House approved the measure 313-118 as 127 Republicans joined with virtually every Democrat to support the bank, whose charter expired June 30. McConnell says he will not oppose it if it is part of the highway bill.
Actually, they don't need it to continue to grow. They have been doing just fine for some time. And they are more focused on the space arena rather than future military plane contracts.
Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James, and Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark A. Welsh III will announce the long range strike bomber contract award at 5:15 p.m. EDT in the Pentagon Briefing Room (2E973). Following their remarks, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition Dr. William LaPlante, Gen Robin Rand, commander, Air Force Global Strike Command and Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch, Jr, military deputy, Air Force Acquisition will answer questions
With the day half over BA has delivered 44 planes so far this month. 15 to go to hit target.
No stock price indication of who won the tanker bid. NOC is holding steady, BA is up a bit.
Announcement after the closing bell.
Monday: The Boeing Co., St. Louis, Missouri, is being awarded an $897,530,175 modification to a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-firm contract for the procurement of 15 Lot 38 full-rate production EA-18G aircraft and associated airborne electronic attack kits.
The reality is that neither LMT or BA need the contract to grow their current business. But Northrop does. Any downturn in stock price of BA if contract goes to Northrop will be temporary. The contract is not built into the forward projections of BA.
From Seattle Times:
Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakataniannounced Friday that Japan will buy three Boeing KC-46A air refueling tankers for its air force. Kyodo News reported that the contract is worth $173 million per tanker.
Boeing released a statement welcoming the deal and pledging to “continue our enduring partnership with Japan.” This is the first overseas sale of the Boeing tanker.
Your source must have had some bias. If you read all the reports from all the media that covered it,
Henry reported that 3 sources had told him that Biden would run. At no time did Henry or fox news declare that Biden would run.
Actually production is doing just fine. Most of the remaining planes are already built and flying test flights or ready for delivery.
They may be doing better that the reporting sites are showing. Those sites missed a lot of deliveries in the last 2 months.
The KC-46 program's first test aircraft, a Boeing 767-2C (EMD-1) touched down at Edwards Air Force Base, California last week (October 15), where Boeing and the 418th Flight Test Squadron are conducting ground effects and fuel onload fatigue testing on the new tanker, due to last a fortnight. Ground effects testing is to gather aerodynamic data for updating the KC-46A simulator as well as supporting certification. Fuel onload fatigue is gathering data to characterize the aircraft interaction typically experienced when the KC-46A is flying in receiver formation behind a current KC-135 or KC-10 tanker. While the KC-46's role is to refuel other aircraft, it may itself need to refuel from other KC-10s or KC-135s to extend its range. fuel onload fatigue testing is the first look at the KC-46 acting in that role and the interactions between the three different tankers in an aerial refueling formation.
NEW YORK, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Boeing Co said on Thursday it booked 20 firm orders for its 737 MAX single-aisle aircraft from Oman Air SAOC, an order that nearly doubles the airline's 737 fleet.
Oman Air's order includes conversions of six 737 NG planes to 737 MAX jets, for a net gain of 14 in Boeing's order book.
I would forego on the dividend till they can get the tanker and the 777x to market on schedule.
But I would take it if they also get the bomber contract ( )).
