Lockheed, Mitsubishi Team to Help Japan Refresh F-2 Aircraft Fleet; Roderick McLean Comments

F2Lockheed Martin and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries have deployed the first set of components for Japan as that country seeks to restore F-2 aircraft that were destroyed during the March 2011 tsunami.

Both companies have delivered the aft and leading edge flaps for the F-2 fighter aircrafts, Lockheed said Thursday.

“We are honored to play a role in helping Japan’s F-2 fighter regain its full mission capability,” said Roderick McLean, vice president and general manager of the integrated fighter group at Lockheed.

“The delivery of the F-2 aft and leading edge flaps is a milestone accomplishment our team is privileged to contribute to Japan’s restoration path,” McLean added.

MHI serves as the prime contractor and Lockheed is the principal U.S. subcontractor for the joint Japan-U.S. development, production and maintenance F-2 program.
