The Air Force's new Long Range Strike Bomber program has been grounded thanks to a protest from Boeing and Lockheed Martin with the Government Accountability Office.
The contract was awarded to defense contractor Northrop Grumman in late October, but Boeing said in a statement, “The selection process for the Long Range Strike Bomber was fundamentally flawed.”
The Air Force denied the allegation, saying the "selection team followed a deliberate, disciplined and impartial process to determine the best value for the warfighter and taxpayer."
