  • Podcast with Boeing on Qatar C-17s
    Posted by Michael Bruno 9:53 PM on Mar 27, 2009

    Aviation Week's Guy Norris has provided a podcast (2:36 mp3) with Tommy Dunehew, Boeing International C-17 program manager. Qatar expects to double its order for Boeing C-17s to four as part of broader plans to bolster its strategic airlift capability around the Middle East region and beyond. Together with four newly-ordered Lockheed Martin C-130Js, the C-17 build-up represents a major airlift expansion for the Qatar Emiri Air Force.
