WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Boeing has received a $59.9 million contract to provide military flight training equipment and services for the government of Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. Department of Defense says the contract is 100 percent foreign military sales to Saudi Arabia, a country the United States views as an ally in the fight against radical terror groups in the Middle East.
