(WICHITA, Kan.) — The end of the competition for the right to build new air refueling jets for the U.S. Air Force may be near.
Boeing posted new information on the website it has dedicated to the tanker.
The company says members of the tanker team met with Air Force officials at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Boeing says it was the last chance for feedback on its proposal before the end of the competition.
Boeing will now make final adjustments to its bid. It will present its final offer to the Air Force February 11. Boeing says it's focused on providing the most capable tanker at the lowest cost to taxpayers.
This will be the third attempt to award the multi-billion dollar contract for 179 tankers.
Just last week, members of the Senate Armed Service Committee heard testimony on a clerical mistake that sent Boeing's bid information to its competition EADS and EADS' information to Boeing.
