The federal government has told Boeing that its bid to replace Canada's aging CF-18s with a new fleet of the American company's Super Hornet fighter jets did not meets its requirements.

Three sources from industry and government say the message was delivered Wednesday as the other two companies competing for the $19-billion contract -- U.S. defence giant Lockheed Martin and Swedish firm Saab -- were told they met the government's requirements.

The Department of National Defence and Public Services and Procurement Canada, which is managing the competition on behalf of the federal government, did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Thursday. However, while Boeing's failure to meet the requirements would appear to disqualify the Super Hornet from the competition, leaving only Lockheed Martin's F-35 and Saab's Gripen fighter jet in the running, none of the companies have been told whether they are still in or out.

News that one of the two U.S. companies competing for the contract failed to meet one or more of those requirements is the latest twist in what has already been a long and often unpredictable road toward replacing Canada's CF-18s.
