I submitted a small article for Seeking Alpha on the KC-45 as a component of the future profit of either Boeing or EADS. The post reads: “Boeing lost out to EADS for the new airforce tanker contract. The KC-45 will be a version of the Airbus 330 transport aircraft. Boeing had proposed a version of the 767 aircraft. Boeing predicted in their Current Market Outlook 2007 that 28,600 new aircarft will be required to meet the growth in the airline industry by 2026. One would assume Boeing and EADS would get a large portion of these aircraft. The US Air Force will probably order less than 400 aircraft. So the tanker contract will be a small componenet of future production for Boeing or EADS, and a small component of earnings.”
