Belgium’s Société Anonyme Belge de Constructions Aéronautiques (SABCA) will continue to provide in-theatre depot support to the US Air Force Europe’s fleet of A-10 fighter aircraft.

In 2001, the firm received a five-year contract for depot support of the USAFE A-10 fleet, which was extended for another three years in 2007.

A new five-year contract will further extend the firm’s cooperation with the air force.

Under the previous contracts the company had inspected, repaired, repainted or upgraded a large number of the air-force’s A10 fleet .
