F15 wings to be built in Saudi Arabia by Boeing

Saudi Arabia, November 1, 2017

Marc Allen, president of Boeing, told Al Arabiya TV that military aircraft wings and other parts will be built in Saudi Arabia.

“We are currently building wings for military aircraft along with other parts in Saudi Arabia,” Allen said on the sidelines of the Future Investment Initiative in Saudi Arabia, “We are applying huge changes to turn F-15s to F15 SAs.”

“We are eager to see the developments envisioned by the Kingdom’s government through its Vision 2030,” he added.

Boeing signed a partnership agreement with Saudi Arabia in May to provide sustainable services to a wide range of military platforms. This included purchasing Chinook helicopters and associated support services, as well as guided weapon systems, in addition to purchasing 16 wide-body planes.
