Boeing’s Tanker Troubles: Issues ‘More Complex’ Than Realized – Blog

The latest setback for Boeing’s KC-46 tanker signals the difficulties the company continues to face with a program that was supposed to be relatively painless.

Boeing has experienced a number of hiccups with the tanker’s refueling system thus far, and they all were chalked up to development issues that are not unusual in military programs. The new hitch announced May 27 could lead to further delays, and comes just a few weeks after senior Boeing executives assured investors and industry analysts that the refueling system problems were under control and the company was on track to deliver 18 tankers and support equipment by August 2017.
