Those are some very impressive numbers they are seeking. The Hawk was able to become the T-45 so I expect all the contenders are capable after some modification. Yes, with a whole lot of structural and aerodynamic modifications. Also, they had to put in a different engine as the original Ardour eng...Jump to post

Income taxes by Lincoln were repealed in 1872 and found unconstitutional in 1895 causing progressives, under Wilson, to pass the income tax amendment to replace lost taxes caused by the 18th amendment.

That's may be true, but seen all the development/ flight testing performed already at the 767-200/CF6-80C2 with warps it's not the most cost effective solution. On top of that, most civil 767's are powered by GE engines, the second preffered engine type is P&W and the few RR powered 767 aircraf...Jump to post
The cheapest option is most of time not the best option, but in this case it could have been (USAF) politics ?
The GE CF6-80C2 would have been the real low risk solution, because this engine is by far the preferred engine at civil 767's and was already installed at the Italian and Japanese 767 tankers. Seen all the time consuming issues with the WARPS - wing flutter on these aircraft, why choosing another e...Jump to post
