Boeing Yet to Seal India Order For C-17 Aircaft, McNerney Says
Boeing Co. Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney said India has yet to order C-17 military transport craft that the U.S. plane-maker has been negotiating for ahead of President Barack Obama’s arrival today.
Obama’s presence in India is helping U.S. companies push for contracts, McNerney told reporters in Mumbai after meeting the president.
Boeing said last month it was looking to sell as many as 10 of the C-17 aircraft in what would be the largest defense deal for the Chicago-based company in India.
