Obama Administration confirms $30 billion Boeing F-15 deal

Eighty four F-15 fighter jets, which are built at Boeing’s facility in Hazelwood, are being sold to Saudi Arabia at a cost of $30 billion, according to the Obama administration. The White House said the deal will support more than 50,000 U.S. jobs. It is still unclear as to how many of those jobs are located in the St. Louis area. The deal would provide the Arab country with the new fighter jets as well as upgrades for 70 others. more
