    tanker progress

    A new chapter in Boeing’s long history as the world’s leader in military air refueling is being written at the Everett, Wash., 767 factory, where the first of four KC-46 Engineering and Manufacturing Design (EMD) test aircraft for the U.S. Air Force is in the final stages of production.
    As KC-46 and 767 program employees gathered recently to commemorate completion of several major assembly milestones, they received congratulations from their customer: the U.S. Air Force. A derivative of the 767, the EMD test aircraft will be delivered to Boeing Defense, Space & Security’s finishing center in Seattle, where they will be completed as KC-46A tankers. The first flight of an EMD test aircraft without its aerial refueling systems is scheduled to take place at mid-year, followed by the first flight of a complete KC-46A tanker in early 2015. The first delivery of a production aircraft to the Air Force is planned for early 2016.
