Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell and U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) today celebrated the selection of the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engine as the exclusive power for The Boeing Company's KC-767 Advanced Tanker. The KC-767 Advanced Tanker is being considered by the U.S. Air Force for the tanker recapitalization program. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) company.

"Connecticut's aerospace industry has always played a key role in supporting America's armed forces," said Governor Rell. "I am excited that Boeing has selected our talented and experienced workforce to help produce the KC-767 Advanced Tanker. Our nation's sons and daughters deserve the most capable, efficient aircraft available and Connecticut-based companies can help deliver that. This would be terrific for our military and terrific for Connecticut's economy."

Both elected officials applauded Boeing's selection of Pratt & Whitney's PW4000 engines for the KC-767 Advanced Tanker during a visit today to Pratt & Whitney's East Hartford campus.

"These programs not only help ensure freedom around the world, they are also vital to the health of Connecticut's work force."
