Reuters reports that sources say the U.S. Navy will not buy any extra F/A-18E/F Super Hornets or EA-18G Growlers in 2015, forcing Boeing to lobby Congress for more purchases, or else it will no longer be able to produce the planes past 2016. According to the article, the Navy cannot afford any more of the jets even though it wants them. As Boeing tries to win more foreign orders, it also is looking at ways to cut down the Super Hornets’ costs by possibly combining it with the F-15. (Image Credit: Boeing)
