The contract involves sustainment of engines on aircraft sold to Britain, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, India and Australia as part of U.S. foreign military sales, the statement said.

(The story corrects to show contract is for sustainment of engines on C-17 aircraft, not F-117 stealth aircraft)
