received a contract worth up to $2 billion from the Air Force for engineering services and the manufacturing of 242 wing sets for the A-10 fleet.
The contract will run through 2018.
The A-10 program calls for replacement wing sets to be delivered in parts and kits for easy installation. Boeing has teamed up with other suppliers to meet all the requirements. The work program should allow the A-10 fleet to fly at least 20 more years, Boeing said.
