O’Keefe Says EADS Can Still Win U.S. Military Deals, FT Reports

European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co. North America Chief Executive Officer Sean O’Keefe said the company can still win some contracts for specialized aircraft for the U.S. military despite Boeing Co. (BA) being awarded the main tanker contract last month, the Financial Times reported, citing an interview.

EADS has got “commercial aircraft that can fit those kind of requirements,” O’Keefe said, the FT reported.
