Boeing’s KC-46A Pegasus Completes Successful First Test Flight

Boeing and the U.S. Air Force celebrated aviation history and a much anticipated milestone Sept. 25, 2015 when the KC-46A Pegasus Tanker aircraft took off on its inaugural flight from Paine Field in Everett, Wash.

Test pilots conducted a four-hour flight, during which they performed a series of system checks before landing four hours later at Boeing Field in Seattle.
