Default Ex Korean 747-8s to become new doomsday jets

SEOUL, May 8 (Reuters)
Korean Air (003490.KS), opens new tab will sell five of its planes to U.S. aerospace firm Sierra Nevada Corporation, the airline said in an exchange filing on Wednesday.
Sierra Nevada recently won a $13 billion U.S. Air Force contract to develop a successor to the E-4B Nightwatch, known as the Doomsday plane due to its ability to survive a nuclear war and act as a command and control centre during emergencies.

They got USD$674m for the lot
