Media given a 1st look inside the KC-46A Program Finishing Center

Today several media outlets were allowed a rare chance to see inside Boeings KC-46A building. This is the Everett Modification Center that has been handed over to the Tanker program. The EMC has changed hands many times before being purchased by Boeing, to include Tramco, BFGoodrich Aerospace, and Aviation Technical Services. The building has the ability to modify 4 767-2C's into KC-46A's at one time, plus a newer individual hangar (45-335) that can house a single tanker. The facility also has a paint hangar. Every 767-2C will pass through this facility to be converted and painted prior to test flight campaign and eventually delivery to the US Air Force.
