What type Powerplants are used on the DHL B763 Freighters.
Any reason for this particular choice?.


Think of the brighter side!

They've got CF6s IIRC.

Same as their 762ERFs.



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Their B752s have RB11-535E4.....Any reason why RR was not chosen for the B763s too?.

Suspect availability, commonality (with other 767s, I mean), and resale value.
No one wants a 767 with RR's, except BA and QF.

For one thing I dont think it is offered any more, (only BA and China Yunnan ever bought them, although QF took a few of the BA birds on lease for a long while as well) and second, rolls-powered 767s are not certified for the AV partners winglets which their 763s do have.

Also the RB211-powered 767s dont have the same range as the GE/PW birds. Fuel burn is comparable i hear, but range and performance not as good. Not sure of the exact figures, but im sure one of our sadder members can reel off the exact figures from memory!

resale value.

I very much doubt DHL are bothered about resale value of their 763ERFs. If they were, they'd have just converted pax 767s instead of buying them new, right?
