The Boeing Co. on Thursday failed to make it to the final round in a closely watched contest to supply the Indian air force with 126 new fighter jets.
The contract could be worth as much as $11 billion to the winning contractor. India’s Defense Ministry announced Thursday that two European planemakers are the finalists in the bidding.
EADS is offering its Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault is offering its Rafale. Boeing was offering its F/A-18, built in St. Louis.
