Development

The Boeing 767 was first offered for sale in July 1978 with an order for 30 airliners by United Airlines. It was developed at the same time as the 757, its narrowbody sister.[5] Prior to its public offering, it was referred to as the 7X7.[6] With the 707 aging, Boeing decided to offer a mid-size wide-body aircraft to fit in between the 727/737/757 and the 747. The 767 has a fuselage width of 15 ft 6 in (472.44 cm) that is midway between the two other aircraft. United Airlines is a major airline of the United States. ...

The first 767, a -200 was rolled out 4 August 1981 and first flew on 26 September 1981.[5] Boeing planned to offer a shorter 767-100 with seating for 180 passengers,[7] but was never offered for sale as the capacity was too close the 757's.[8] is the 216th day of the year (217th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The 767 was designed using engines used on the 747 with wings sized to match. The wings were larger and provided longer range than the initial customers wanted. However, the larger wings only increased fuel usage slightly and provided better takeoff and landing performance. Boeing designed the 767 with enough range to fly across North America and across the northern Atlantic.[9]

The flight decks of the Boeing 757 and 767 are very similar and as a result, after a short conversion course, pilots rated in the 757 are also qualified to fly the 767 and vice versa. The 767 was approved for U.S. CAT IIIb operation in March 1984. This revision permitted operations with minimums as low as RVR 300 (Runway Visual Range 300 feet). It was the first aircraft certificated for CAT IIIb by the U.S.[10] The Localizer station at Hanover/Langenhagen International Airport in Hanover, Germany. ...


In the late 1980s, Boeing proposed a stretched version of the 767, and then a partial double deck version with parts of a 757 fuselage built over the aft (rear) fuselage.[11][12] These concepts were not accepted and Boeing shifted to an all new airliner that would become the 777.[13] Boeing would later develop a stretched 767 version in the form of the 767-400ER in the late 1990s.

The 767 sold very well from the late 1980s to the late 1990s, with a decrease during the recession in the early 1990s. After strong sales in 1997, sales have declined significantly, due to the economic recession of the early 2000s, increased competition from Airbus, and the recent emergence of a direct replacement program, the Boeing 787. Boeing has kept the line open due to KC-767 tanker program, which use the 767 airframe. In early 2007, United Parcel Service and DHL have prolonged the 767's production with orders for 767-300 freighters of 27 and 6, respectively.[14][15] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 509 pixelsFull resolution (2683 × 1708 pixels, file size: 2. ...

The renewed interest in the 767-300 freighter has Boeing considering enhanced versions of the 767-200 and 767-300 freighter, with increased gross weights, 767-400ER wing technology, and 777-200 avionics.[16] Boeing sees the advanced 767-200F and 767-300F as complementing the 777F, and allowing Boeing to compete more effectively against the A330-200F, which is larger than the proposed 767-200F and 767-300F, but smaller than the 777F.


As of April 2008, the Boeing 767 has 1011 orders, with 962 of those delivered.[1] Delta Air Lines is currently the world's largest 767 operator, with approximately 102 airplanes, including the 767-300, 767-300ER, and 767-400ER. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, their hub, has the highest number of Boeing 767 operations in the world. Atlanta Airport redirects here. ...

The Boeing 767 is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a conventional tail unit with a single fin and rudder. It has a retractable tricycle landing gear and is powered by two wing mounted turbofan engines.

The 767 offers a twin aisle configuration of 2+3+2 in economy with the most common business configuration of 2+2+2. It is possible in some charter configurations to squeeze an extra seat for a 2+4+2 configuration. However, the seats are very narrow and this is not common. The 767 has a seat-to-aisle ratio in economy class of an efficient 3.5 seats per aisle, allowing for quicker food service and quicker exit of the airplane than many other jetliners, which typically have four to six seats per aisle in economy class.


It can carry freight in Unit Load Devices such as LD2s and LD8s. Its fuselage width does not allow larger ULDs such as LD6s, LD11s, and LD3s. One of the design requirements of the 767's replacement, the Boeing 787, was for it to use the LD3/6/11 family of ULDs to solve the wasted volume issue. ULD Type AKH Unit Load Devices, or ULDs, are pallets and containers used to load luggage, freight, and mail on wide-body aircraft and specific narrow-body aircraft. ...

Newer 767-200s and 767-300s, as well as all 767-400ERs, feature a 777-style cabin interior, also known as the "Boeing Signature Interior". The 767-400ER also features larger windows exactly like those found on the 777. All new 767s built feature the Signature Interior, and it is also available as a retrofit for older 767s. In addition to the Boeing Signature Interior retrofit option, a simpler mod known as the "Boeing 767 Enhanced Interior" is available. This retrofit borrows styling elements from the Boeing Signature Interior; however, the outer section overhead bins are traditional-style shelf bins rather than the 777-style pivot bins.

This final extended variant was launched in 1997 on an order for Delta Air Lines and Continental Airlines to replace their aging Lockheed L-1011 and McDonnell Douglas DC-10 fleets. Orders were also placed by others including Kenya Airways and ILFC but these were eventually canceled. Kenya Airways and ILFC converted their orders to the Boeing 777. The -400ER was stretched 21.1 ft from the -300 for a total of 201.4 ft. It also saw a wingspan increase of 14.3 feet over the previous two variants and is the only 767 variant to also feature "raked" wingtips for increased fuel efficiency. The -400ER was introduced into service in 2000. This variant is only available as the 767-400ER, as there was no 767-400 variant. However it has less range than the other two ER variants. The 767-400ER's direct Airbus equivalent is the Airbus A330-300. The 767-400ER is expected to be replaced by the 787-9 in Boeing's lineup.

Boeing discussed extending the range further but the proposed 767-400ERX was not launched. It was introduced along with the Boeing 747X and was to be powered by Boeing 747X Engines (Engine Alliance GP7172 and Rolls Royce plc Trent 600).[19] It would have combined the 767-400ER's size with the range of a 767-300ER. Kenya Airways provisionally ordered this model to supplement their 767 fleet. However, in the end, Kenya Airways converted the order to the 777-200ER, eschewing the 767-400ERX altogether.

Military

Versions of the 767 serve prominently in a number of military applications. Most military 767s are derived from the 767-200ER.


Airborne Surveillance Testbed

The Airborne Optical Adjunct (AOA) was built from the prototype 767-200. The aircraft was later renamed the Airborne Surveillance Testbed (AST). Modifications to the aircraft included a large "cupola" or hump which ran along the top of the aircraft from above the cockpit to just behind the trailing edge of the wings. Inside the cupola was a suite of infrared seekers that were used to track theater ballistic missile launches in a series of tests.[21] The aircraft remained in storage at the Victorville Airport in California for a number of years before being scrapped in July, 2007.

The pilots used the aircraft's ram air turbine to power the aircraft's hydraulic systems for control. There were zero fatalities. This aircraft was nicknamed Gimli Glider. The aircraft (C-GAUN) continued service within Air Canada until its retirement in January 2008.[29]

The Boeing 767, a widebody jet, was introduced at around the same time as the 757, its narrowbody sister.
On the downside, as the 767 has a slightly narrower fuselage diameter than other wide-body aircraft (such as the Airbus A300 and A310), it is unable to carry ordinary Unit Load Devices, and instead has to use specially designed air freight containers and pallets.
The flight decks of the Boeing 757 and 767 are very similar and as a result, pilots rated in the 757 are also qualified to fly the 767 and vice versa.
