CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


The story of aviation has always been the story of people who have the courage to fail, to try again, and to one day succeed. And the passion to advance aeronautical design through innovative solutions is ingrained in our culture.

KENOSHA, Wis., April 14, 2014 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] today showcased its F-35 Lightning II mobile cockpit demonstrator to elected officials and leaders in the veterans and business communities at Snap-on Incorporated, a key supplier of custom tools for the F-35 program.

Snap-on Incorporated supports the multi-million dollar program by manufacturing an array of special tools and storage boxes in multiple plants across its U.S. manufacturing network and by assembling customized kits specifically for the F-35
in its Kenosha, WI facility. This program helps maintain the global F-35 deployment and employs manufacturing workers in Wisconsin and other communities.

“The products being assembled here in Kenosha are contributing to the future of our national defense by supporting the next generation fighter jet – the F-35. I’m proud to join the hard-working men and women of Snap-on today as they celebrate their contributions to this critical program,” said Congressman Paul Ryan.

“We’re pleased to be able to demonstrate the capabilities of the F-35 Lightning II at Snap-on Incorporated,” said Gary Hentz, director, Tactical Aviation Programs for Lockheed Martin. “The employees here in Kenosha are contributing to the F-35s flying today and we’re excited to offer an opportunity to showcase this fighter’s superior performance capabilities to them.”

“Snap-on is a U.S.-based business that is proud to support the F-35 Lightning II, the world’s only 5th Generation multi-role fighter,” said Andy Ginger, president of Snap-on Industrial. “We are honored to help enable this extraordinary program and support the U.S. Defense Strategy.”


During today’s event, attendees received an update on the status of the program as well as the opportunity to “fly” the F-35 cockpit demonstrator to experience stealth capability, fighter agility and integrated information through the eyes of a pilot. The cockpit is visually and audibly interactive and provides a realistic look at the F-35’s performance, air-to-air and air-to-ground capabilities, sophisticated sensor fusion and advanced computational capabilities.

The F-35 program has more than 1,400 suppliers in 46 states and Puerto Rico, building and sustaining a highly skilled workforce critical to national security and economic prosperity. Additionally, thousands more are employed in the F-35
program’s partner countries, which include the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark, and Norway.

The F-35 Lightning II is a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully-fused sensor information and network-enabled operations.


As the lead F-35 training location, the Integrated Training Center at Eglin Air Force Base has qualified pilots and maintainers from the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, the U.K. and the Netherlands. The F-35 training system maximizes simulation to prepare pilots and maintainers before they head to the flight line.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 115,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s net sales for 2013 were $45.4 billion.

Snap-on, headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is a manufacturer of shop equipment products, automotive diagnostic tools, and repair information solutions.
