US Air Force orders three Boeing C-40C
08 Feb 2005
The U.S. Air Force has placed an order for three Boeing C-40C aircraft, a 737-700 aircraft based on the Boeing Business Jet. The C-40C will provide transportation for government officials replacing the C-9A. The first of the three aircraft will be delivered in early 2007. Military avionics and other state-of-the-art equipment will be installed on the 737-700 aircraft prior to delivery. Following delivery, the aircraft will be operated by the 932nd Airlift Wing at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
The USAF already operates three C-40C, as well as two almost similar C-40B aircraft.
