  • Dropping in on Denmark

    Boeing is trying to make the most of its two F/A-18F Super Hornets to be displayed at the Indian air show next week.

    Rather than just focus on the massive Indian order, Boeing used the flight to India to drop in on another potential customer: Denmark.

    Boeing is trying to convince the Danes to buy the F/A-18E/F rather than the Saab Gripen or Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

    The aircraft arrived in Copenhagen on February 1. It was accompanied by a tanker.

    The stop was used to show off the aircraft to the military, policy leaders, and also Danish industry members, which would be involved in the offset arrangement.
