VH-71 - current status ?

Where are the nine VH-71A airframes currently - with the project in limbo pending further progress with the new VXX program aircraft TV-2 through TV-5 and PP-1 through PP-5 are believed to be currently stored.

A report from the US suggests that approx 6 VH-71 airframes are stored with Lockheed Martin at Owego in NY state - I would assume that the balance of the fleet are hangared at NAS Patuxent River.

If you can provide any more details on the current disposition of the nine VH-71 airframes then please let me know - thank you.

  2. This award, from today's DoD Contracts notification, may finally shed some light on the disposition of those AW101s:

    Lockheed Martin Corp., Mission Systems and Sensors, Owego, N.Y. is being awarded a $58,590,309 modification to the previously awarded cost-plus-award-fee VH-71 System Development and Demonstration contract (N00019-05-C-0030), which was terminated for the convenience of the government. This modification provides funding for post termination related expenses, including, but not limited to, the physical inventory of contractor acquired property; proposal preparation; security; disposition of contract inventory; subcontractor settlement costs; termination management activities; and applicable fees. Work will be performed in Owego, N.Y. (36 percent) and at various subcontractor facilities located within the U S, and in the United Kingdom and Italy (64 percent), and is expected to be completed by September 2011. Contract funds in the amount of $58,590,309 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command is the contracting activity (N00019-05-C-0030).
