Looking ahead, we expect 2007 revenues in excess of $12 billion, with growth led by our aerospace and defense businesses. We expect strong growth in business jet deliveries as we deliver against our record backlog and respond to increasing global demand. We also are preparing to deliver more commercial helicopters in 2007 as we execute against backlog in this market. Our defense businesses are expected to remain strong as we continue to support the U.S. Governments efforts in Iraq and elsewhere. We expect segment profit to increase reflecting improvements in each of the manufacturing segments.

We expect higher revenues in 2006 as a result of revenue increases at Bell, Cessna and Finance, while the Industrial businesses are expected to be down slightly. At Bell, revenues are expected to increase primarily due to higher commercial helicopter deliveries. At Cessna, we expect an increase in revenue due to higher sales of jets based on our current delivery schedule.
Textrons commercial backlog from unaffiliated customers was $7.4 billion and $6.3 billion at the end of 2005 and 2004, respectively, and is primarily related to Cessna. U.S. Government backlog was $3.3 billion at the end of 2005 and 2004, which was substantially all in the Bell segment. See Backlog in Item 1. Business of Textron on page 6 for more information.
