U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Lockheed Martin $900 million for an F-16 maintenance facility.

Lockheed Martin Corp., Fort Worth, Texas, has been awarded a ceiling $900 million firm-fixed-price, time-and-materials, over-and-above, cost-reimbursement contract to stand up a continental U.S.-based contractor facility to perform depot-level maintenance and aircraft modification services in support of the F-16 aircraft, a U.S. DoD release said.

Support will include all aircraft modifications, unplanned drop-in maintenance, time compliance technical orders, scheduled inspections and contract field team support.

The company won an additional $36.5 million to provide additional intermediate level maintenance capabilities in support of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter for the Navy and the Marine Corps.
