REQ SEATLE AREA

Post by Dave Smith » Sun Sep 30, 2018 9:52 am

Considering a visit in to distant future - to make it worthwhile how many KC46 are in the local area currently or have a lot been delivered?

USAF haven't had a single KC-46 delivered as of yet, believe the first is due within the next couple of months.

You weren't incorrect. The ones at Kelly have not been delivered to the USAF, they are Boeing property...

Dave, early Aug I saw 7 at Boeing Field (one of which was reported as N461FT) and 22 complete at Everett, all seen from public areas. A lot easier to get them now!

I was there two weeks ago and counted a similar number at each airfield, along with an Aussie P8 at Boeing field. The ones at Everett didn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Also here were 169344, 169345, 169346, 169542 & A47-008 P8.

Paine Field 28/9/2018

N5513X

Hope this wets your appetite. They are spread around & not visible from any one location so make sure you go round to all the hangar areas.
