Boeing Sends India Its Second P-8I Naval Reconnaissance Aircraft

Bolstering Naval surveillance capabilities, replacing/complementing Soviet specimens.

The Navy is reported to have received the second of its twelve P-8I aircrafts, which it is purchasing from Boeing.

"With two aircraft at Naval Station Rajali now, the Indian Navy will get a good feel for the P-8I's interoperability with other aircraft," said Leland Wight, Boeing P-8I program manager. "Acceptance trials on the first aircraft are progressing well and its availability for testing has been excellent, in large part due to Boeing’s worldwide 737 support capabilities."
