TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 15, 2019 — Boeing (NYSE: BA) has delivered to the U.S. Air Force late last week the fifth tanker aircraft that it built for the service branch to support aerial refueling operations, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

“We look forward to continuing to deliver KC-46 tankers to Altus, McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas, and New Hampshire’s Pease Air National Guard Base, throughout this year,” noted Leanne Caret, president and CEO of Boeing’s defense, space and security business and a 2019 Wash100 awardee.
