Air Force official Will Roper said Friday flight testing to bring the tanker has been finished. McConnell, in southeast Wichita, will be the first base to receive the tanker that uses the Boeing 767 passenger airplane as its airframe.

The flight testing for the first delivery was completed July 6 in Seattle.
