Boeing releases Q1 delivery information
Boeing on 13 April released data for its major military aircraft programme deliveries for Q1 2021.
In the three months ended 31 March, the company delivered 24 new and remanufactured AH-64 Apache attack helicopters; six new and renewed CH-47 Chinook transport helicopters; three F-15 Eagle fighter aircraft; four F/A-18 multirole fighters; two KC-46 aerial refuelling aircraft; and three P-8 maritime patrol aircraft.
While deliveries of new and modified Apaches and F-15s increased on a year-by-year basis in Q1 2021, fewer Chinooks, F/A-18s and KC-46s were delivered than in Q1 2020.
Design and production issues with the KC-46 resulted in only two deliveries of the tanker aircraft in Q1 2021, half the total in Q4 2020.
In Q1 2020, Boeing delivered 16 new and remanufactured AH-64s; ten new and renewed CH-47s; no F-15s; five F/A-18s; five KC-46s; and three P-8s.
