First Flight for KC-46 delayed until November

Poorly designed wiring bundles for the U.S. Air Force’s KC-135 tanker replacement aircraft have driven program officials to further slip first flight of the Boeing 767-2C aircraft from June to no earlier than the middle of November.
Despite the delay, Air Force Maj. Gen. John Thompson, program executive officer for the KC-46 program, says he is confident the Boeing-led team can deliver the first 18 tankers by August 2017, as required in the contract.
