The Boeing Co. of St. Louis has won two contracts worth a total of $25 million for repair of F/A-18 fighter jet components and 49 percent of the work will be performed at Cecil Airport in Jacksonville.
The rest of the work will be performed at the Avionics Repair Facility in Lemoore, Calif. (48 percent) and the Hornet Control Center in Philadelphia (3 percent), the Defense Department said in a news release.
The work will be completed by Dec. 31, 2013.
The Naval Supply Systems Command in Philadelphia awarded the contracts, which were not competitively procured.
