Boeing Statement on GAO Long Range Strike-Bomber Decision

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 16, 2016 – Today, the Government Accountability Office denied the protest filed by the Boeing and Lockheed Martin team challenging the Air Force’s award of the Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B). We continue to believe that our offering represents the best solution for the Air Force and the Nation, and that the government’s selection process was fundamentally and irreparably flawed.

We will carefully review the GAO's decision and decide upon our next steps with regard to the protest in the coming days.

Given the significance of the LRS-B program, it could not be more critical that the government procure the most capable bomber to serve the warfighter, at the greatest value to the American taxpayer.
