That competition has been delayed and restructured but it's not over," said Dennis Muilenburg, the head of Boeing's defense unit. Oct 18, 2013

Excluding Brazil, Boeing predicts Latin America could account for sales of several billion dollars. Boeing is focusing on Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru.
