The federal government has confirmed Boeing's Super Hornet fighter jet is out of the running to replace Canada's CF-18s.

The official confirmation comes nearly a week after The Canadian Press first reported that Boeing had been told its bid for the $19B fighter jet contract did not meet Canada's requirements.

The competition now comes down to Lockheed Martin's F-35 stealth fighter and Sweden's Saab Gripen.
