Despite all the above mentioned issues, the next KC-46A emerged on the Everett flight line :
L/N 1216 C/N xxxxx B767-2C 19-46059 USAF KC-46A (VH059) Lot 5, #03/15, tail 96059

See Matt Cawby;s Paine Field blog of June 30th : http://kpae.blogspot.com/2020/06/paine- ... ne-30.html

Operating a twin over the ocean, you're always one engine failure from a total emergency.
