Australia Will Purchase Two More Boeing 737-700 Aircraft for Project Wedgetail

The government of Australia has exercised options to purchase two more 737-700 aircraft as part of Project Wedgetail, an airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) program. These options bring to six the number of aircraft that will be part of the 737 AEW&C fleet. Boeing signed a $1-billion-plus contract for Project Wedgetail in 2000.
