The launch of the eagerly awaited 787 Dreamliner still hasn't happened, but the aerospace manufacturer is flying high. Profit rose 83.9%, thanks to new plane orders, commercial plane deliveries, and contracts with the military and government, including three successful space shuttle launches in 2007.

In March, the company lost a tanker deal with the U.S. Navy to a group that includes Airbus-parent EADS, the first time the Pentagon has awarded a major aerospace contract to an overseas company.
