RAAF Chief: Airbus A330 MRTT boom woes yet to be resolved

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Chief Air Marshal Geoff Brown says that Airbus Military has yet to resolve problems with the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport's refuelling boom. Speaking in London, Air Marshal Brown says the KC-30A tanker and troop transport has been on the Australian defense department’s Projects of Concern list since 2010 and is the “biggest priority at the moment,”

In an coincidental twist, we flew on board one of the RAAF's KC-30s just as the news came out, refuelling a flight of RAAF F/A-18F Super Hornets over the Coral Sea just off Brisbane during a Exercise Talisman Saber mission. Photos from that will appear on the website soon.
