The first flight test was projected to take place 28 months after program approval and Allison promised initial delivery ten months after that. By 1970, however, sufficient research had been undertaken on re-engining the KC-135 to eliminate the need for these boosters. Following Phase II testing, 55-3118 returned to Boeing. By late February 1957 Boeing had stiffened the vertical fin by overlapping additional skin on the top portion of the fin and by installing dual rudder tab dampers to provide more constant control over existing rudder oscillations.
Phase V adverse weather testing concluded with hot weather evaluations at MCAS Yuma, Arizona. Dates and results of these tests have not been made available for this history. '" These tests were conducted from 4th June 1957, through 8th November 1957, and required 577 hours, 20 minutes of flying time. Additional data were acquired from the other test aircraft also located at Edwards AFB. Project officer was Lieutenant Colonel George A Kirsch, project pilot was Captain Charles Gandy Jr, and project engineer was First Lieutenant Douglas Nielsen.
In addition, the Air Force could use government facilities to repair any damage. Finally, if the 'Dash 80' was damaged beyond repair or otherwise lost, Boeing could choose to (a) receive, at no cost, one of the first seven KC-135As, (b) build a new 707 or KC-135 at government expense for company use, or (c) accept a cash settlement for the loss, not to exceed $7,500,000. 54 The Air Force also agreed to pay all expenses of the test program, and the flight test contract was completed. Negotiations then stalled on the production contract for Boeing's fee for each airplane.
