  • T-X contract goes to Boeing-Saab

    A consortium of Boeing and Saab has won the contract for the USAF's T-X trainer aircraft. Twin tail, single GE 404 engine, elevated IP seat.

    Only all-new design in the competition, uses the F404. SAAB is the sub, but right now the plan is to make about 80% of the airframe, etc. at St. Louis, keeping the lines open for future combat aircraft.

    Best,
    Andy

        Musta had the wrong image. Here's the one from Boeing's PR department.

            Could one be straight tail, and the other a turn tail :-)
