Aerotech News Digital Edition - December 6, 2019

Hello, fans and friends, and welcome to the December 6th edition of Aerotech News and Review! After a month spent focusing on gratitude for the service of our military veterans, we’re back to the business of covering life and flight in Aerospace Valley – and as usual, the pace is brisk and the milestones are many! On our cover, we have news of the latest phase of testing on the KC-46 at Edwards AFB, with the successful test of the craft’s Wing Aerial Refueling Pods, or WARPs. (There always has to be an acronym, right?) Click on the link below to read the full story in our digital edition and prepare to be amazed at the advances of aerial refueling technology in the modern age.
