Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a potential 11-year, $999M contract to manage the production of up to 112 wing sets and spare kits for the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft. The company said Wednesday that the service branch initially ordered 27 A-10 wing sets under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Boeing will collaborate with Korean Aerospace Industries and Save and Close other suppliers to bring the first wing sets to Ogden, Utah-based Hill Air Force Base. The company delivered 173 wing assemblies under a previous contract.
