Boeing says it plans to start building components for the first Air Force KC-46A tanker this fall, and it hopes to begin assembling the first aircraft a year from now.

A Pentagon report shows Boeing expects the tanker development phase to cost $5.1 billion, which is $300 million above the Defense Department's ceiling price.

Boeing plans to build the aircraft on the existing commercial 767 production line in Everett, Washington.
