I was looking at an old, outdated airline manuel and it showed that Continental Airlines had placed an order for a number of 767-300ER's. Did this order exist or nt b/c it also showed CO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


Thanks,
GO TRIBE!!!

It was actually a order from way back in the day (early 90s). I believed they switched them for 762s/764s.

I know for certain that there are a few 767-324ER out there.

Not sure how many though and if CO ever operated them.

Anyway, they were not ordered as a part of the 762/764 order CO did a few years ago.

They were likely ordered before their early 90s bankruptcy and were canceled under reorganization.

CO has never operated any B763's, only the B764 with the raked wing that Gordon made very intersting landing of the first delivery to them at IAH. Then the B762's came along.

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.

I know one was painted in CO colors at Boeing before delivery. Delilvery fell through and the a/c ended up at Ansett.

I think some of the -324's found a home at Alitalia.

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).

Best way to discribe it would be to say "the Boss" had the airport people out the next day checking for little airplanes on the runway as the day before someone planted an airplane on it!  bouncy 

Not bad for the boss though really.  Smile
