This artist’s rendering provided by Boeing Co. shows Boeing’s NewGen Tanker that the Chicago-based company has proposed to the U.S. Air Force. Boeing competed with European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) to win a $35 billion Pentagon contract to build nearly 200 giant airborne refueling tankers, to replace the Air Force’s Eisenhower-era KC-135s.
