The Boeing 767 was developed alongside the 757, Boeing’s two new airliners to emerge in the early 1980s which introduced the latest in aerodynamics, cockpit design, engine technology and passenger comfort.
The 767 was Boeing’s answer to the Airbus A300 – the world’s first widebody twin airliner, offering increased passenger capacity without the need for three or four engines. Pretty soon the 767 offered models which could fly long-haul, too.
Still in production as a freighter, the 767 is now almost 40 years old. Sadly the prototype aircraft was scrapped in 2006 (see Catching Up With the Boeing Prototypes).
So which are the oldest 767s still in existence?
