Singapore 2010: Boeing upbeat about F-15 despite lack of orders

The F-15 has been flying for more than 35 years in air forces all over the world, but the line finally appears to be coming to an end with a lack of recent orders.

Boeing, however, believes that its latest variant, the F-15 Silent Eagle, will snag some new contracts from countries like South Korea, Singapore and Japan.

It is likely to remain a challenge to get new contracts, but the F-15SE will compete against aircraft like the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter in upcoming competitions and Boeing says that it will be a viable alternative.

We will know if there is any basis to Boeing’s optimism over the next year.
