This undated photo provided by European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) shows an aerial refueling tanker aircraft, that EADS North America has offered to the U.S. Air Force as the KC-45, as it refuels an F-16 fighter aircraft via a refueling boom system. EADS is competing with Boeing Co. to win a $35 billion contract to build nearly 200 giant airborne refueling tankers, to replace the Air Force's Eisenhower-era KC-135 planes. If EADS wins, the tanker would be assembled in Mobile, Ala., at the former Brookley military base, shuttered in the 1960s. Either way, about 50,000 jobs would be created in the U.S. (AP Photo/EADS North America)  NO SALES.
