Cancellation of Marine One Procurement

Expense Amount: $85,000,000
Year of Expense: 2009
Expense Details:

The VH-71 program receives a stop work order from the Pentagon.

The 5 production and 4 test aircraft would still be the property of the US Navy. The US Navy said that the $85 million 2010 budget request includes money to cover termination costs, government efforts to develop options for a replacement program, and service life extensions for the current presidential helicopter fleet. Some estimates place termination costs as high as $500 million, but that figure remains to be negotiated between Lockheed Martin and the federal government.
