KC-767 Tanker Certified to Refuel a U.S. Air Force Jet

In a major milestone for the U.S. Air Force and the Italian Air Force, Italy’s Boeing-built KC-767 air refueling tanker is now certified to refuel a U.S. fighter jet. It’s a first for any international Air Force, and its successful completion is a key strategic step for both nations as they strengthen interoperability capabilities.  

Boeing provides Performance-Based Logistics support for Italy’s tanker fleet, delivering the full spectrum of maintenance, repair, and overhaul services, field support operations, and other support services.
