Saudi Arabia's Boeing F-15C/D fighters pass safety inspection

By Craig Hoyle



The Royal Saudi Air Force has resumed flight operations with its fleet of

about 80 Boeing F-15C/Ds, after removing a grounding order imposed after the

November 2007 crash of a US Air National Guard aircraft. Forward-fuselage

longeron inspections conducted by Alsalam Aircraft have been completed and

"there were no defects with the fleet", the company says.

Alsalam, meanwhile, is conducting flight testing on the last two C/D-model

aircraft to have undergone programmed depot maintenance at its Riyadh

facility, and work has begun on the first eight RSAF F-15S strike aircraft

to enter maintenance and upgrade at the site under a separate contract.
