I've seen this bird photographed, and I have a few questions. Looking at the last two numbers on the type, it looks like a Continental ship. Did CO order -300s that were never delivered? Additionally, why is the registration in the 300s (394) while all other DL 767s have registrations starting with "1"? Thanks for your help.

Yes. Continental ordered 767-300ERs and did not take delivery of them.

Yes, CO originally had some orders for 767-300(ER)s but never took them. I know at least one was built and had the CO colors on the rudder only. DL aquired the a/c from Asiana and it actually arrived ATL in full Asiana colors. As for 394.........194 is taken and who knows???? Kinda like the 764ERs having MH at the end?!?!?!?!?!

Well... never delivered to CO.

Those ships can currently be found flying for Delta, Vietnam, North American, etc

DL's "N numbers" don't always follow a pattern, as you can tell from this example. However the "tail number" usually does follow the pattern. In this case, the aircraft is Delta ship 1521. The first digit is a "one", indicating a 767. To take it a step further, with a four digit tail number in DL's 767 fleet, the second digit, "5", indicates an aircraft purchased/leased from someone besides Boeing. The other examples being 1501-1506, which are ex Gulf Air.

Ship 1521 still had Continental gallleys and galley equipment installed when delivered to DL (since removed). It still has CO's trademark lavender-colored PSU's to this day.


This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Just need to add, the-324 tells you that it was built for CO. Boeing jets are simple that way.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Think there were 5 or 6 767-324s built for CO but they never took delivery of a single one. Vietnam Airlines has a few and also North American and the Delta one. Delta got theirs from Asiana, I think.

I know Ansett took one, it was used to pick up the Olympic Flame from Athens in 2000, it flew with a full CO Economy INterior, but Business was changed.

Why didn't CO take delivery of them?
