Turkey Sanctions Boeing For Delays

09.05.2013  defenseworld.net

Turkey has imposed undisclosed penalties on Boeing for major delays in the US company’s spy plane program, a top Turkish official said.


Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz said major delays in Turkey’s multibillion-dollar program for the purchase of four airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft from Boeing were due to the company’s failure in developing the system as well as other uncontrolled events within the program.

Under a July 23, 2003, contract, priced at more than US $1.6 billion, Boeing was to develop and deliver four AEW&C aircraft to the Turkish Air Force in 2008. The program involved the delivery of the 737-700 airframe, ground radar and control systems, ground control segments for mission crew training, mission support and maintenance support.

Yilmaz said April 8 that Turkey has paid Boeing only for work completed and has imposed legal sanctions for the delays considered the company’s failure.
