Three F-15K fighter jets made by Boeing in the U.S. were delivered to an airbase in Daegu on Monday. The F-15K, or "Slam Eagle," is now the main fighter jet of the South Korean Air Force, and 41 units were handed over to the Korean Air Force in 2008.
The three units that arrived on Monday are part of a second acquisition phase tallying 21. They left the Boeing plant in St. Louis, Missouri on Aug. 16, and passed through the U.S. air bases of Palmdale, California, Hickam, Hawaii, and Anderson in Guam.
