    The entire helicopter will be assembled where I work in Amarillo, TX. Then it will be flown to Owego, NY (where the high tech avionics packages will be installed) and delivered to the Marines (HMX-1) from there.

    The competition’s (Sikorsky H-92) aircraft actually had/has a lower American made content than the Lockheed-Martin/Bell Helicopter version (US101), only the design is foreign (British). The 101 will be made in America, so Rep. Rosa DeLauro needs to get her facts straight.

    Honestly, I have enough to do at work, this just means more work for me and the same old pay.
