Boeing: F-15SE development continuing (despite reports otherwise)

Boeing has said that the development of the F-15SE Silent Eagle is continuing, with a new series of ground, windtunnel and flight tests on several key features of the F-15SE due to being in March or April. Flight testing is also planned to begin late in the fourth quarter of 2012 or early next year.

This comes as reports in the South Korean press suggest that the American aircraft manufacturer may pull the F-15SE out of South Korea's F-X III fighter competition due to an inability to complete development work on the semi-stealthy F-15 variant in time to meet the country's 2016 entry into service date requirement.
