Israel Aerospace Industries and American defense company Lockheed Martin, teamed up to create a production line that was opened at a ceremony in Israel, attended by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, Daniel Shapiro, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, and many others. The factory will produce 4 sets of wings per month which will then be attached to F-35 fuselage in the United States. Potential sales are estimated at $2.5 billion.
Israel Aerospace Industries Chairman Rafi Maor said, “Our partnership for Lockheed Martin in producing sub-assemblies for the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world is strategic for IAI … we are excited to work with the American government and our industry partners to help deliver next generation capabilities.”
