US Senator Murray and Congressman McDermott listen to national anthem during rally supporting Boeing 767 in bid for new US Air Force aerial tanker in Everett
U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) (C) and Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) hold their hands over their hearts as the national anthem is sung before a rally supporting Boeing's bid to use the 767 jet for a new U.S. Air Force tanker fleet at Boeing's manufacturing facilities in Everett, Washington September 27, 2010. Transatlantic airliner maker rivals Boeing and Airbus are battling for a contract to build 179 new planes worth up to $50 billion so the Air Force can start phasing out its Boeing KC-135 tankers, which average 50 years old. Murray has been a staunch supporter of the Boeing 767 jet as the U.S. contender for the new tanker fleet. REUTERS/Anthony Bolante (UNITED STATES - Tags: MILITARY TRANSPORT BUSINESS POLITICS)
