Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received an $84M contract modification to create technical publications about the VC-25B presidential aircraft, or Air Force One.

The company and its subcontractors will provide integrated manuals for the aircraft system as part of the sole-source award, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

The service is obligating $13.5M in research and development funds at the time of award. Work will take place in Seattle through Jan. 15, 2025.

Boeing secured a $600M modification in September 2017 to conduct preliminary design work for the conversion of two 747-8 aircraft units to replace the current fleet of VC-25A presidential planes.
