    KC Tanker Marks End of an Era

    Large speculation and some confirmation from Seattle insiders have informed the aviation public that the recently built KC-767 tanker, supposed to be for the US Air Force, will be the last 767-400 built.

    Not a very successful version, but none the less, certainly introduced some fantastic new features like the raked wing-tips, now dominant on 777 models and the 787 and 747-8.

    What the newly built tanker will be used for is still in the air.
    Many Thanks,
    Lewis Simmons

    I believe EDS and Airbus won the contract for the next gerneration USAF tanker. Boeing has filed a protest but not sure that will go anywhere.

    Yup I know that I'm just saying that the last 767-400 built will probably be this one.
