Are CO's B762s brand new? I could have sworn that I heard that Boeing restarted the manufacturer of the -200, probably especially for CO. Is the B762 manufacturered these days?

All 767s are manufactured on the same assembly line in Everett. CO's machines are factory-new.

Excellent! Thank you very much N79969! I thought that they were new, but I needed it confirmed. Thanks again.  Smile

The 767-200 line was re-opened for the Japanese Air Force which ordered 767-200 AWACS, and possibly aerial refuelers. CO took advantage and ordered 10-11 new build 767-200s with the latest avionics and 777 style interiors.

The 767-200 will be built for a long time to come, the USAF plans on replacing their ageing fleet of KC-135s (707s) with new build 767-200 refuelers.

The current USAF KC-135 fleet numbers about 400-500.

Oh, I thought it was the other way (Boeing reopened the production line for CO and JSDAF took advantage), but this way, it makes sense, too...!

Thanks STT757!  Big thumbs up
