First Aerial Alternative Fuel Transfer Between USAF
The F-22 Combined Test Force reached another milestone as an
F-22 Raptor based at Edwards AFB performed aerial refueling using a
synthetic fuel. It is the first time an Air Force aircraft refueled
mid-air using an alternative jet engine fuel.
A 'Hail Mary' proposal from Boeing in hopes of gaining new
orders for its C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft may not be
needed, according to the four-star general in charge of procuring
new cargo planes for the US Air Force.
