Boeing - Defense Products and Services at Australian International Airshow

Boeing : 04 March, 2009  (Company News)
Boeing will showcase an array of leading-edge technology, products, services and capabilities at the 2009 Australian International Airshow, which opens March 10 at Avalon Airport in Victoria.
'The Australian International Airshow provides an opportunity for Boeing to meet with the Australian Defence Force, regional customers, and partners to discuss how best to meet emerging needs,' said Rick McCrary, vice president of Australia Business Development for Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. 'Boeing is an important part of the Australian aerospace and defense industry, and we are pleased to be a long-standing participant at this major show.'

Boeing will host four media briefings during the air show, starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 10, with an overview of the company's defense business and programs in Australia. This will be followed by an 11 a.m. briefing on the Project Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) program.

At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 11, Boeing, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and the U.S. Navy will present a briefing on the world's most advanced combat-proven, multirole strike fighter -- the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. Australia is acquiring 24 Super Hornets to enhance the RAAF's air combat capability. The final scheduled briefing, at 11 a.m., will provide an update on the P-8A Poseidon multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft.

Boeing's presence at the show will include the static display and aerial demonstration of Australia’s newest fighter aircraft -- the F/A-18F Super Hornet -- and the C-17 Globemaster III military transport. Other products on static display include the CH-47 Chinook medium-lift helicopter, ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, and Wedgetail AEW&C aircraft. The Boeing exhibit also will feature the Vigilare air battle management system, a P-8 mission demonstrator console, and an F/A-18 simulator.
