Antelope Valley new stealth bomber

Antelope Valley Jobs Boon Expected in Wake of Air Force Bomber Contract

According to the Antelope Valley Times, October 27, 2015, the U.S. Air Force awarded Northrop Grumman Corp. a contract, one of the largest in Air Force history worth up to $60 billion, to build the nation’s next-generation stealth bomber. An onslaught of new job openings are expected in the wake of the contract for a fleet of radar-evading long-range bombers. The Long-Range Strike Bomber will be one of the Pentagon’s biggest weapons systems of the next decade, and is slated to enter service in the mid-2020s. Much of the plane will likely be assembled at Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale. According to some reports, the project could create more than 6,500 aerospace jobs in the area.
