Boeing profit up on rising plane deliveries

(Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N) reported an increase in second-quarter profit on Wednesday as rising airplane deliveries offset higher pension costs.

    The plane maker and defense contractor reported a profit of $967 million, or $1.27 per share, compared with $941 million, or $1.25 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

    Sales rose 21 percent to $20 billion, boosted by commercial aircraft sales.
