The U.S. Air Force may need some refueling aircraft above and beyond what Boeing is supposed to be producing for them.

A military contract to build refueling tankers by Airbus in Mobile was yanked away and given to Boeing.

Mobile instead got an Airbus Assembly Plant for commercial aircraft which is a much better deal in the long run.

Seven years later, Boeing has yet to deliver the first plane to the U.S. military.

Airbus and Lockheed Martin have now signed a joint agreement to explore aerial refueling projects.

They haven't announced new construction of new planes.

According to a press release, they're looking to fix any current service shortcomings.

Airbus and Lockheed Martin are also exploring the future of aerial refueling.
