Boeing Statement on United Kingdom Tanker Program

Boeing today released this statement regarding the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence's decision to enter negotiations with a competing consortium for the Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft program.

"Boeing is naturally disappointed with the outcome. The UK market remains important for our company, not just in sales opportunities but also as a key supplier and partner base. Today's decision does not diminish the company's partnership with the UK, nor the future of the 767 Tanker program."
