Boeing has delivered the third Peace Eye 737 Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft to the Republic of Korea Air Force.
May 21: Boeing delivered the third Peace Eye 737 Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft to the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) on May 16.
The aircraft was delivered ahead of schedule to ROKAF Base Gimhae, the main operating base for the Peace Eye fleet. This is the second aircraft in the fleet to be modified into an AEW&C configuration by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) at its facility in Sacheon.
“A key factor in our continuing success in delivering Peace Eye’s powerful capability is the close working relationship that exists among the Boeing team, the ROKAF, the Defense Acquisition Program Administration, and our Korean and US industry partners,” said Randy Price, Boeing Peace Eye programme manager. The last Peace Eye aircraft being modified by KAI will be delivered by the end of this year.
