It is kind of funny that this KC-46 article wound up on the FlightAware news , as it is a Boeing / USAF millitary issue . But i have been following the KC-46 story on 3 different Military Blogs i receive each day , for quite a while . It is a very sad story for Boeing , that they have fallen so far , from something they used to do so very well . With the on going problems with the Max added into the financial woes , i often wonder if Boeing can survive all the calamities with these two projects . Will this be the demise of Boeing as we presently know it ?
Penny for your thoughts ........DGR

I'm beginning to think the USAF should have been allowed to select the EADS/Northrop-Grumman KC-45 as the replacement for the ancient KC-135. The KC-46 is supposedly more fuel efficient, but is the fuel savings going to be eaten up by delays in fixing serious issues and cost overruns? Boeing used to be the king of commercial airliners and had such a strong presence in our military. Boeing seems to have lost their way and I too am wondering how Boeing will survive their recent string of failures.

Hi Michael Stansfield . In hind sight it seems that Airbus ( A dirty word in a USAF contract ) or your suggestion ,all seems to late . The USAF was excepting , then stopping deliveries and with holding millions until the KC-46 is up to snuff . From FOD Foreign object debris , Garbage , found in delivered aircraft , to A class one failure of an in floor latching system , that i had felt Boeing had mastered a very long time ago , just makes me wonder . But what i wanted to say , is it is to late for Boeing , USAF and Congress to back out . They HAVE to make this tanker work . And if i might mention the remote control re-fueling system is also a can of worms . The KC-46 is a very troubled project . Thanks for your reply Michael . Always nice to hear from others ..........DGR
