The Feb. 10 article on the U.S. Air Force's Advanced Technology Bomber, "Northrop Job Cuts May Signal Slowdown on Stealth Program," contained inaccurate information on LTV Aircraft Products Group. Times staff writer Ralph Vartabedian alleged in the story that LTV, a member of the Northrop team on the program, has had configuration control problems and that the Air Force has been forced to suspend some operations at our Dallas facility. Despite the corroboration of "two industry sources," these allegations are not true.

Northrop has begun to lay off employees at its Stealth bomber plant in Pico Rivera, it was learned Tuesday, a signal that the secret defense program may be experiencing at least a temporary slowdown. Layoffs of 100 or fewer workers are not unusual in big defense programs as requirements for different skills change, aerospace industry sources said, but even minor cutbacks in the Stealth program could represent a problem at a time when the company should be expanding its work force.
