    The Boeing Co. is anticipating opening up new international markets next year for both its CH-47F Chinook heavy lift helicopter and the V-22 Osprey, a senior company executive said Oct. 24.

    “I firmly believe we will have our first international sale sometime in 2013, or no later than the first quarter of 2014,” Mark Ballew, Boeing’s director of business development for mobility rotorcraft, said of the tilt-rotor Osprey it produces in partnership with Bell Helicopter.

    He would not reveal the name of the first international customer, but added that there were in-depth discussions with a handful of other countries interested in the aircraft as well.
