The U.S. Air Force has given Lockheed Martin a contract modification for the sustainment of the F-22 Raptor fleet.

Lockheed Martin has received a $111.4 million contract modification from the U.S. Air Force for sustainment of the F-22 Raptor fleet, resulting in a contract value of $709 million.

F-22 Raptors are assigned to seven U.S. bases. Flight testing takes place at Edwards AFB, CA. Operational tactics development is ongoing at Nellis AFB, NV. Pilot training occurs at Tyndall AFB, FL. Operational F-22 aircraft are assigned to Langley AFB, VA; Elmendorf AFB, AK; Holloman AFB, NM; and Hickam AFB, HA.
