U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Dennis Reimer said 10th December the military needs more C-17 transport aircraft as well as other lift resources. The number of the Boeing planes being bought may not be enough "to do all the things we need to do," Reimer said in Washington. "We need more C-17s, quite frankly," he said.

Some of the numbers are already wrong (717 deliveries) but it may be an indicator.

Besides the 757s bought by the military, they will also be buying the 767 tanker and 767 AWAC. Both these planes use the 767-200 airframe

You can go to the Boeing web site and they have some sort of video streaming where you can watch some Boeing news.

Well, more C-17s is always good. Maybe a streched version could be built someday...

This is exactly why Boeing will be fine even though it is going through a ruff time. They are highly diversed and have many profit makers besides their biggest one commercial transports.
