Here at the Paris Air Show yesterday, Stork and Northrop Grumman signed a framework contract worth $150 million for Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter airframe components. If the agreement translates into a firm order, Stork will produce 520 in-flight opening doors for all three types and 110 inner weapons bay doors for the STOVL version during the low-rate initial production phase. The latter is to spread over a seven-year period from 2007 to 2013. Stork has now received JSF work orders potentially worth $290 million.

The JSF has three variants–conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL), carrier (CV) and short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL).
