Boeing to Compete for $34 Billion Air Force Contract

Chicago-based Boeing has issued a competitive statement advertising its refueling tankers to the US Air Force. The bid was won last year by Northrop Grumman and the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Co. but bidding was later re-opened. The contract is worth $35 billion.

Rick Lemaster, Boeing’s tanker program manager said, “If the Air Force wants a flexible wide-body tanker that is well suited to operate in an austere, expeditionary environment, the Boeing 767-based tanker is a powerful and demonstrated solution…And if the Air Force values more fuel, cargo and passengers, the Boeing 777-based tanker offers superior capability.”
