Boeing F-15 bid not dead in South Korea: Reuters
- Boeing (BA +1.4%) is "still very much engaged" with South Korea regarding a multibillion tender offer for fighter jets.
- The country restarted the bidding process last month after 15 former South Korean air force chiefs signed a petition opposing the F-15s due to concerns over the planes' capabilities..
- "What they decided to do was to delay and take another look, so we're still very much engaged there with the F-15," Reuters quotes BA as saying.
