The French defense ministry has taken delivery of its first upgraded E-3F Sentry airborne early warning aircraft to be modified by Boeing and Air France Industries. The aircraft is the first of four E-3F Sentrys to complete the mid-life update that is based upon the Block 40/45 upgrade developed for the U.S. Air Force's E-3 fleet. The project is part of a 2010 U.S. foreign military sale worth $324 million. All four aircraft are due to be upgraded by 2016.
