Boeing and U.S. Air Force aircrews successfully completed the KC-46A tanker‚Äôs first refueling flight on January 24, 2016 in the skies above Washington state. Following takeoff from Boeing Field in Seattle, the KC-46A test team worked through a series of test points before smoothly offloading 1,600 pounds of fuel to an F-16 fighter aircraft flying at 20,000 feet. During the 5 hour and 43-minute flight, both Boeing and Air Force air refueling operators accomplished multiple contacts with the F-16 that confirmed the system was ready to transfer fuel. Master Sgt Lindsay Moon, U.S. Air Force KC-46 air refueling operator, then ‚Äúflew‚Äù the tanker‚Äôs 56-foot boom downward and waited for the F-16 to move into position before fully extending the boom into its refueling receptacle. The KC-46 offloaded fuel to the fighter and when the fuel transfer was complete, the system automatically turned off the pumps and Moon smoothly retracted the boom. Rickey Kahler, Boeing KC-46 air refueling operator, also guided the boom during contacts with the F-16 while sitting in the tanker‚Äôs state-of-the-art refueling operator station in the front of the tanker. Also known as EMD-2, the tanker made its first flight September 25, 2015 and has now completed 32 flights.Photographic Prints are printed on high gloss, heavy photographic paper using the finest Canon archival inks.
