Further P-8As Ordered

 

The U.S. Navy has awarded Boeing a $2.4 billion production contract for the next 19 P-8A Poseidons. The contract includes 10 aircraft to add to the US Navy’s inventory of P-8As in the U.S. Navy fleet, all five jets currently under contract for Norway and the four aircraft remaining for the existing UK purchase, bringing the total United Kingdom acquisition to nine aircraft.

The United Kingdom and Norway are acquiring the Boeing aircraft through the Foreign Military Sales process and will receive a variant designed and produced for the U.S. Navy called the P-8A Poseidon. The United Kingdom will receive their first aircraft in 2019 and Norway will begin receiving aircraft in 2021.
