UK requests C-17 contractor support

A quick read through suggests that all of this will come from Boeing (there's a reference to "no offsets") so it looks like Boeing will be supported in part by the British taxpayer again (runs away bravely and dives even bravelier for very deep cover).

Just an extension of the current system, where the UK C17s are incorporated into the US maintenance and update programs

Yup

 

Marshalls Aerospace in Cambridge are often involved in Boeing military stuff in the UK, so I wouldn't be surprised if there are some bits and pieces going there way.

Most stuff is Boeing lets face it ...Poseidon, wagtail (like wedge),C17,Apache,Chinook then there is LM ....Hercules ,Merlin (mission system) and em F35.

Don't forget the new, super-secret fighter the USAF supposedly just tested.
