AH-64D Apache Longbow Boeing subsidiary McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Co in Mesa, AZ received a $136.9 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract “for procurement of war replacement AH-64D Apache Longbow aircraft.” Work will be performed in Mesa, AZ and is expected to be complete by April 10, 2011. This was a sole source contract initiated on Jan. 31, 2007 by the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command in Redstone Arsenal, AL (W58RGZ-05-C-0274). In recent days, a pair of Apaches have been lost in Iraq, reportedly to 12.7mm machine gun fire and to an SA-7 Strela man-portable missile.
