Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin Corp. said yesterday it won a contract to sell 10 additional transport aircraft to the U.S. Department of Defense.
No purchase price for the aircraft was given. Officials at Lockheed Martin couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
On Nov. 26, the Defense Department agreed to pay $650 million for 14 of Lockheed's C-130J aircraft.
Four of the aircraft from the order announced yesterday will go to the Maryland Air National Guard and two will be used to track storms from Mississippi. Two more will be sent to Pennsylvania, and two will be used by the Marine Corps.
