Boeing’s top tanker executive, Dave Bowman, briefed the news media today about his company’s plans to compete for the KC-X tanker contract. Bowman’s presentation was actually a preview of Boeing’s tanker update next Tuesday for reporters at the Paris Air Show. This is Boeing’s opening salvo in the marketing war between Boeing and the Northrop Grumman/EADS North America team in the third round of the KC-X competition. More details of Boeing’s strategy will come out as the US Air Force and the Department of Defense refines its acquisition strategy for the tanker contract.
