I believe that there is a very good chance that this aircraft could be selected for the Air Force of my country, New Zealand in the next year or two.
We need something to replace our ageing Hercules fleet and these are one of the options on the table..the best option IMO.




Advertisments like this have been at our nation's capital, there were also similar advertisments at the airport...

Boeing is in charge of the KC390 advertisement and marketing, expect to see more of those around lol

Hope NZ choose the KC390, it will be a good sell for the program.

Greeting from Brazil.

ps: May I post this picture somewhere else with the credits to you?
