14 June

B762 USAF 15-46009 RCH046
Routed west-east across Ireland 10:45 to 11:11 at FL350
First KC-46 in the logs

Note inclusion of the MDS type number 46 in the registration, yet another variation of US serial assignment

Lost track soon after but possibly the example due at the Paris Air Salon

Other Paris-bound overflights include:
2019-06-12 B789 N1501X, due for Tahiti Nui but bailed back to Boeing
2019-06-13 SF50 N116PB, Cirrus' demonstrator

I noticed the KC-46 Pegasus ( Do Rolls Royce not own the name? ) west of Dublin yesterday, I didn`t realise they had actually completed some.
From what I have read there was some debate as to what spec they should have, which seemed odd as the Italian`s and Japanese already have a version,the KC-767

I think the US version is to have the B787 cockpit displays and an improved boom system, probably cost oodles more as well.
