Backlog for 767 production is 24 aircraft.

9 of these are for ANA, 7 for JAL.

ANA ordered th 7E7 as 767 replacement.

The tanker scandal is not coming to a smooth solution atm.

Boeing will soon need people & production facilities to start up 7e7 production.

-200(ER) & -400ER production has basicly ended.

What will Boeing do ?

With completed airframes the 767 backlog could be in the late teens. Either the tanker kicks in quickly, or a quick demise. A better solution could be to take some of the stored 762 and convert to tankers. Then have Boeing spend the effort producing a 7E7 tanker from the start. Reason I say this is that the RAF went for 332 tanker, as it is more flexible than a dedicated tanker. This requirement is probably more similar to many other nations globally, than that required by the USAF. The 7E7 could therefore answer the calling for all air forces. The 767 personal would then be used in the meantime to convert a 100 or more 762's, until the 7E7 kicks in. Does this sound logical?

Col, i agree. If DoD doesnt say something sure soon, Boeing is gonna close the 767's doors. Of course, there is always victorville, goodyear, mohave. How many 762s are there???
Its time for the DoD to decide whether the 767 tanker flies or dies.
Go 767!

Now you're really flying

I was finished off some weeks ago by some well known users for even suggesting there could be alternatives to new build KC767's ..

What I have heard LAN Cargo is in talks with Boeing about addtional 2 new B-763F for delivery in 2005.

So maybe 2 more planes to build
