Description: The CF6 engine was designed to power commercial airplanes. Its military version, F103 military designation, has been provided to power large military aircraft like KC-10, B-767 AWACS, Air Force One, E-4B and the YAL-1A aircraft. In the early 2000s CF6 family engines have been selected to power KC-767 and A330 tanker/transport aircraft.

The CF6-80C2 emerged from CF-6080A engine featuring higher thrust and more efficient slightly larger fan. This engine has thrust ratings from 52,500-lb to 63,500-lb and entered commercial service in 1985. The Airbus A300, A310, Boeing 767, 747, MD-11, and the Air Force One (a modified B747-200) are powered by CF6-80C2 engines. Recently, Japan and Italy selected the same engine to power their KC-767 tanker transport aircraft. Japan also selected the CF6-80C2 engine to power the C-X tactical transport aircraft.

On September 16, 2004, the US FAA certified CF6-80C2 engine for USAF and Lockheed-Martin RERP C-5 modernization program. Flight tests powering the C-5 aircraft are scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2005. RERP will extend the service life of C-5 fleet beyond 2040. General Electric expects to produce around 500 engines valued at $2.6 billion including logistics support through the projected life of the program.

On 17 August 2005, UPS placed an order for eight Boeing 747-400F Freighters with three aircraft to be delivered in 2007 and the remaining five in 2008. UPS 747-400F fleet will be powered by General Electric CF6-80C2-B1F engines. On 1 September 2005, Nippon Cargo Airlines selected General Electric CF6-80C2 engines to power four Boeing 747-400F aircraft which were slated to be delivered in 2007. The engines were valued at $150 million.

On June 13, 2006, Boeing and Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) announced a purchase agreement for two additional Boeing 747-400 Freighters valued at $460 million. Deliveries were scheduled for 2008 and 2009 replacing older 747-200 freighters. The Japanese carrier selected General Electric CF6-80C2 engines to power these aircraft. The engine contract was valued at more than $80 million.
