JAL receives its 50th Boeing 767

Boeing a few days ago delivered its 50th Boeing 767 to Japan Airlines, which is the fifth-largest 767 operator in the world.

The PR people at Boeing were good enough to send through this photo of the 767 taking off from Paine Field in Everett, Washington  on the 7 May for its ferry flight to Tokyo Narita.

It is amazing that Boeing’s 767 production line is still going. But ironically the delays to the Boeing 787 have helped to keep the 767 production line going.

Airlines that need new medium-haul aircraft quickly are turning to 767s and Airbus A330s to meet their immediate needs rather than waiting on 787s and Airbus A350s.
