Boeing has won a third contract from the US Air Force for KC-46A tanker aircraft.

The latest $2.1bn order for 15 KC-46s, together with spare engines and wing air refueling pod kits, follows two previous orders in 2016 for seven and 22 aircraft. First deliveries are expected to commence this year and Boeing plans to eventually supply 179 767-based aerial refuelling aircraft.
