Saudis May Scrap F-5 Replacement: Industry experts say the kingdom--the world's biggest aircraft arms importer--wants to phase out the warplanes and seek to replace its F-15s, first delivered in the early 1980s. The alternative program could come early in the next century as the McDonnell Douglas Corp. aircraft reach the end of their service life, analysts said. That contract, potentially worth more than $5 billion, could be finalized in 1996, a well-placed Arab source said.

Jet Sale May Save Jobs: Hughes Aircraft Co. said the proposed sale of 72 F-15XP fighter jets to Saudi Arabia could save about 200 jobs at its Fullerton plant. The $5.6-billion deal with Saudi Arabia could preserve a total of 500 jobs for at least three years in the Orange County and El Segundo plants, where Hughes workers make radar systems for the F-15, a company spokesman said Monday. The sale of the jets is not guaranteed.
