"Air Force officials removed the suspension of three Boeing Co. units associated with its rocket business March 4. The company's Launch Systems, Boeing Launch Services and Delta Program business units were suspended July 24, 2003, for serious violations of federal law, officials said. The 20-month suspension has been the longest for a major defense contractor."
"The U.S. Air Force is set to lift an order that suspended Boeing Co. from getting satellite launch contracts since mid-2003, defense officials said on Thursday. The announcement could come as early as Friday after the close of trading in financial markets, said the officials, who declined to be named."
