Boeing KC-767 Tanker Transfers Fuel for First Time

The Boeing KC-767 Tanker transfers fuel for the first time Oct. 23 from its advanced boom to a simulated receiver on the ground. Boom operators on-board the aircraft used the aerial refueling systems to offload fuel from the new tanker to an aircraft receptacle on the ground at the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems facility in Wichita, Kan. Fuel flow, delivery and surge pressure all were measured while the fuel was pumped to nearby trucks.
