USAF exploring public-private partnership for B-52 re-engine initiative

According to Lt. Gen. Mike Holmes, U.S. Air Force’s deputy chief of staff for Strategic Plans and Requirements, the service is looking at viability of using a public-private partnership to replace the TF-33 engines on the B-52 bomber.

“The idea is in a public-private partnership, somebody funds the engine and then we pay them back over time out of the fuel savings, which are generated out of the new engines,” he said.
