The Boeing NewGen Tanker Advertisements
Currently the United States Air Force is conducting a competition to replace the 50-year old air refueling tanker KC-135.
The Boeing Company and the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company have each offered a refueling tanker developed from a currently available commercial airliner. Boeing is offering a tanker based on the Boeing 767, whereas EADS is offering a tanker based on the Airbus A330 which is over 50 % larger than it's competitor.
Since the winner of the competition will be awarded a lucrative contract of 179, Boeing & EADS have launch and aggressive sales and marketing campaign for the job.
Boeing has come up with the following advertisements for the job. In the ads, Boeing uses the elements of job security for 50,000 American workforce, more savings for the government in the long run and also a proven track record of Boeing delivering more 2000 tanker over the last 60 years compared to it's competitor.
It would be a real surprise if EADS got the job.
