Logistics: American Tanker Follies Resume

Logistics: American Tanker Follies Resume: “There are, for all practical purposes, two suitable replacements (the Boeing KC-767 and Airbus MRTT/KC-30) already flying. These two aircraft are being sold to air forces around the world. Last year, the U.S. Air Force selected the Airbus aircraft, which is based on the Airbus 330-300, which normally sells for $160 million each. The losing design, KC-767, being American, caused a stink in Congress, and questions about the selection process. So the decision was rescinded, and the air force was ordered to try again.”
