This deal is funded through the Department of Defense's Foreign Military Sales program.

In August Boeing received a $500 million contract for work on F-15QAs for Qatar, and in 2017 the contract won a $6.1 billion contract to produce the aircraft for Qatar's air force.

The 2017 deal followed State Department approval the year before of a potential $21.1 billion, 72-aircraft deal for Qatar.

Work on the contract will be performed in St. Louis, Mo., with an expected completion date of Dec. 21, 2021.
