WASHINGTON - Boeing Co., the second-biggest U.S. defense contractor, was reinstated yesterday by the Air Force as a contractor for its space rocket program. Reinstatement allows the Chicago-based company to compete again with Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin Corp. for government rocket contracts and will ensure that the United States has two viable options for launching its military spy, weather and communications satellites into orbit. Boeing is again "a full partner on our national security space team," acting Air Force Secretary Peter B. Teets said at a Pentagon news conference.
