Home, home again…(click to view full) Boeing subsidiary McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Co. in Mesa, AZ received a $44.4 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for remanufacture of six AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopters. Longbows are fairly new, but machines that have seen heavy use in Iraq and Afghanistan and taken the accompanying wear-and-tear, sand, and sometimes small arms damage often need a refurb after coming home. Work will be performed in Mesa, AZ and is expected to be complete by May 2007. This was a sole source contract initiated on Aug. 27, 2004 by the Army Aviation and Missile Command in Redstone Arsenal, AL (DAAH23-00-C-0124).
