The U.S. Air Force has awarded a Beavercreek firm a contract for C-17 work.

U.S. Aeroteam Inc. is being awarded a $15,477,850 firm fixed price contract for C-17 airplane engine ground transport trailers, the Department of Defense announced. The work will be performed locally by July 30, 2013, the DoD said. The contracting activity is at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia.
