Boeing to Support F/A-18E/F Super Hornet


Boeing (NYSE: BA) has been awarded a $71 million contract to support the U.S. Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fleet. The contract, which was announced last week, will cover maintenance and support services for the aircraft.

This is good news for Boeing, as the Super Hornet is one of the company's most popular aircraft. The deal will help ensure that the aircraft remains in service for years to come.

The Super Hornet is a twin-engine fighter jet that is used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. It is capable of carrying a variety of weapons and can be used for both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions.

The aircraft has been in service since 1999, and over 500 have been built. Boeing has delivered over 400 of those aircraft to the U.S. Navy.

The $71 million contract is just a drop in the bucket for Boeing, but it is still a significant win for the company. It shows that the U.S. Navy is still committed to the Super Hornet, and that Boeing is still the go-to company for supporting the aircraft.

This contract is also a good sign for the future of the Super Hornet.
