Boeing has begun production of the first of 36 F-15QA (Qatar Advanced) Eagle combat aircraft that were signed for in December 2017.

The Qatari Ministry of Defence (MoD) disclosed the launch of production in a Tweet posted on 3 August that showed senior government ministers touring the line in St Louis, Missouri, and signing the first aircraft parts.

Neither the MoD nor Boeing has said when deliveries will begin, but it has been disclosed that they will run through to the end of 2022.

The Advanced Eagle is the latest variant of the Boeing-made fighter that has also been ordered by Saudi Arabia as the F-15SA.
