Exclamation Boeing's first E-10A - PHOTO incl.

Hi guys,
Managed to shoot the E-10A flying yesterday and thought you guys may like a sneak peak. After the contract was lost recently to the -330 this frame has no direct future and may end up stored in the desert. The aircraft has no windows or cargo door so is currently very limited to its uses.

I'm sure for the right price, the Israeli's could be swayed into buying Airbus too...

Now that I would like to see. Same too with the Japanesse for that matter. Much of what both buy (not just talking a/c here) seems to be very American indeed, more so than any other countries I have ever visited.

They would be 767-200ERs, not 767-400ERs as shown in Scotts photos.

wasn't Boeing's proposal for the USAFtanker project based on a 762ER platform rather than the 767-400?

E-10 isn't the tanker.

KC-767 (762ER) lost to KC-45 (A332) for the USAF aerial refueling competition thingy
