South Korea Receives Three Additional Boeing F-15K Slam Eagle's

The Republic of Korea Air Force has received three additional F-15K Slam Eagle’s on August 20th, 2011, as South Korea continues to bolster their fighter jet arsenal.

The Boeing F-15K Slam Eagle is manufactured by Boeing and left their St. Louis facility for delivery on August 16th, 2011.  The fighter jets made a series of stops which entailed going through Palmdale, Calif., Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, and Anderson Air Force Base, Guam, before arriving in Korea.

“We are pleased to receive the latest three F-15K Slam Eagles, F-15K 51, 52 and 53, from Boeing,” said Lt. Col. Tae Uk Kim, Commander of the 110th Squadron, 11th Fighter Wing, ROKAF. “The F-15K is one of our most important assets in defense of the peninsula. We are satisfied with the continued on-schedule, quality deliveries of our F-15K Slam Eagles from Boeing.”

The Republic of Korea is expected to receive a total of F-15K Slam Eagle’s from Boeing.  They already took delivery of six F-15K’s in 2010 under the designation of a contract called “Next Fighter II.”  Two more fighters were delivered by Boeing in April followed by an additional two in May.  Boeing says that eight remaining fighter jets will be delivered through April, 2012.
