Hail to the chief — hail to jobs.

Lockheed Martin in Owego getting a big contract. More than a billion dollars to build 23 new helicopters — not just any choppers. These will be used to fly the President. Known as Marine One, it’s the familiar chopper you see on TV that lands on the White House lawn.

The contract will help to create or keep 200 high skilled workers on the job in Owego.
