Air Force 'moving toward completion' on tanker
The Air Force is "moving toward completion" on deciding whether Boeing Co. or Europe's EADS will build 179 new refueling planes, Air Force Sec. Michael Donley said. Donley told military and industry officials that a hearing planned by the Senate Armed Services Committee on the Air Force's handling of the tanker competition would not affect the timetable for an Air Force contract award. He declined to give a firm date for a contract award, saying only that the new refueling tankers remain a "very, very high priority" for the Air Force and that "source selection is moving toward completion."
