Aerospace Comes Back to the Antelope Valley

Hosted by  • 

Even by aerospace standards, the numbers are stunning: 100 new Stealth bombers to be built in the Antelope Valley, thousands of new jobs, and all paid for with $60 billion in federal funds -- with production cost overruns likely to push that much higher. That's the economic windfall from one of the biggest contracts in Pentagon history, won by Northrop-Grumman in competition with Boeing and Lockheed.
