OWEGO, N.Y. -- Lockheed Martin's Owego plant has landed a major contract to update several aircraft.

The company says the new cockpits will feature a complete display system upgrade and an improved interface for pilots, along with other upgrades. It will extend the fleet's mission capability for another 20 years.
