There are others that may fit and Geo David is on the hunt.

As reported by Reutors,
Analysts suggested United Technologies might consider deals with Textron Inc.(NYSE: TXT), B.F. Goodrich Co.(NYSE: GR), or RockwellInternational Corp(NYSE: ROK). Rockwell International shares rose as much as 18 percent on Monday as investors speculated it could be a takeover target inthe wake of GE's plan to buy Rockwell's biggest rival,Honeywell. Rockwell shares were up $3-5/8 at $38-7/8, a rise of10.28 percent, in afternoon trade on the New York StockExchange. Analysts said in addition to United Technologies,interested buyers could include Siemens AG and Tyco International(NYSE: TYC). Paul Nisbet, an analyst at JSA Research in Newport, R.I.,said Providence, R.I.-based Textron Inc. could be a good fit with United Technologies, because both companies make helicopters. Textron shares, which have fallen by 45 percent in the pastyear, were up 2.68 percent at $43-1/8 in afternoon trade on the New York Stock Exchange. "That stock is down very sharply (inrecent months), as was Honeywell's, and probably is down farenough to make it quite interesting (as a takeover target),"Nisbet said. Nisbet also said B.F. Goodrich could be an attractive acquisition "because it is quite heavily into the aircraft-maintenance business."
