BERWYN, Pa., May 2 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania-headquartered company is to help support the U.S. Air Force’s fleet of C-17 Globemaster III transports under an award from Boeing.

The Triumph Group Inc. said that under a three-year contract from Boeing, maker of the airlifter, it will provide overhaul and maintenance services for the aircraft’s auxiliary power units, fan thrust reversers, pitch trim actuators, landing gear manifold and ramp actuators.
