LOA SIGNED FOR 72 F-15S AIRCRAFT FOR ROYAL SAUDI AIR FORCE

 ST. LOUIS, May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States and Saudi Arabian governments have signed a Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) for the purchase of 72 McDonnell Douglas F-15S aircraft for the Royal Saudi Air Force.
 "The signing of the LOA is important to McDonnell Douglas as it truly firms up the program," said Pete Von Minden, vice president and general manager of the F-15 program for McDonnell Douglas. "It provides formal authority to proceed with full production."
 The total value of the LOA is approximately $9 billion. The value of this program to the F-15 team is estimated at $5 billion.
 McDonnell Douglas has been working under a $122 million contract awarded by the U.S. Air Force last December to begin ordering initial long-lead parts and material for the F-15S aircraft. The LOA clears the way for additional phases to that contract and will allow for the continued flow of funds to McDonnell Douglas through the life of the F-15S foreign military sale.
 Deliveries of the F-15S aircraft will begin in late 1995 and continue through 1998.
 Saudi Arabia currently operates more than 90 F-15C/D aircraft.
