The order is related to a historical contract, bringing its total value to $170.6m.

AAR senior vice-president of group management Lee Krantz said: “Over the past 50 years AAR has been the sole provider of 463L cargo pallets to the USAF and we are honoured to support their ability to deploy strategic assets worldwide.

“This new order ensures that we will continue to assist them in maintaining optimum readiness levels across the USAF and other services within the DoD.”
