EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Boeing Plaza - Boeing KC-46 Pegasus

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at the Boeing KC-46 Pegasus tanker on display in Boeing Plaza. The brand-new aircraft, based on the 767 airframe, was parked near the Boeing exhibit in view of its older cousin, the KC-135. The KC-46 features the next-generation refueling boom and center drogue systems operated remotely from the forward crew cabin. The KC-46 can be configured for aerial refueling, passenger transport, cargo hauling and/or aeromedical evacuation missions.
