Boeing C-17 Program in Long Beach Gets $895 Million Upgrades Contract
January 2, 2013
For the next decade, Boeing Co. employees in Long Beach will provide technological enhancements to the U.S. Air Force's fleet of C-17 airplanes.
Government officials recently awarded Boeing a $895 million contract to provide software and hardware upgrades to the C-17 Globemaster III weapon system, according to the U.S. Department of Defense.
The contract is the latest good news for the endangered production line, following a string of foreign deals, as U.S. military orders have ceased.
