Boeing sees cancellation of 787 Dreamliner order

US aerospace giant Boeing is "strongly considering" not entering a bid in the next round of competition for the US Air Force refueling tanker contract, Aviation Week said Monday.
Last Wednesday the Defense Department presented Boeing and Northrop Grumman with revised terms for a request for proposal (RFP) for a 35-billion dollar contract to produce a new generation of aerial refueling tankers.
The contract is for 179 aircraft, the initial phase of a fleet replacement project worth some 100 billion dollars over the next 30 years.
Citing "multiple" sources familiar with Boeing's internal discussion, the industry magazine said: "Company officials are strongly considering the option of not submitting a proposal as the company's Integrated Defense Systems sector tries to respond to the draft RFP within the government's speedy timeline.”
