I was looking at an old, outdated airline manuel and it showed that Continental Airlines had placed an order for a number of 767-300ER's. Did this order exist or nt b/c it also showed CO having a number of 736's in their fleet.

Continental had ordered them before the 90s bankruptcy but they were not taken up--I believe a small number (2 - 4 or so) were built but they went directly to other carriers--I know Vietnam had a couple that may have ended up in DL's hands.

Quoting Baw716 (Reply 8): What happened with Bethune and the B764 delivery at IAH?
Think it is best summed up by saying it wasn't an auto-land and the next day I think the aviation dept. ground crews were on the approach end of the runway looking for a bunch of little airplanes because they planted some the day before with the landing.
Hey, not too bad for the boss though!!

CO ordered 5 767-300s that were built, but not delivered to CO. IIRC, they were built in '93 or '94. Somewhere (AWS&T, I think) there was a photo of the Boeing ramp and there were 4 or 5 of the planes, all white, except the blue and gold CO rudder. These aircraft were delivered to a few different operators, including Vietnam and Ansett (one each, again IIRC).
