The contract, which is valued at $900 million, agreed to the creation of a Lockheed Martin depot to provide assistance to US military aircraft including modifications, maintenance and programmatic work.

Vice president of the Lockheed Martin F-16 program Danya Trent welcomed the announcement.

“We are excited for this opportunity to expand our partnership with the US Air Force and ensure the continued readiness and capability of the F-16 fleet,” she said.

“Our team of F-16 experts in Greenville are ready and prepared to meet our customer’s most challenging problems, partnering between production and sustainment operations, giving full life cycle coverage for the F-16.”

Lockheed Martin confirmed that 4,588 F-16s have been delivered around the world since the beginning of the program.
