Re: Boeing To Build More 767s?

Scott -

The real crime here is that the Pentagon didn't push the technology envelope - and award some development contracts for blended wing tanker concepts - which would have saved US taxpayers Billions over the program life...
Not to mention much lower radar observability

But, that concept is still stirring... so maybe a dent can be made in the costs somewhere down the road... .by changing horses....
