I just have a question for you guys...in the Boeing serial NG, I know that the B777 is a fly by wire flyer and was the first Boeing plane long haul built with fbw...but what about the 737's NG and 767.400, are they a fbw airplanes?

Keep in mind that as far back as the 737-300, fbw was capable, to an extent. When this A/C was operated with the autopilot, in cws(control wheel steering) mode, the A/C was steered using a sensor mounted below the cockpit floor. The crew would put an input to the yoke,and the sensor would detect it. I dont remember what it is called, but it used a digital link to communicate with the FCCs (flight control computers). The fcc would compute the data and send a signal to the autopilot actuators and move the appropriate control surfaces.
In modern terms though, it was not a fbw aircraft, either is the new 737 though. They have what is known as fadec, for the engines, but not fbw. I dont think the 767 series is either, but we dont work on those--sorry..

B727 Series - Not FBW
B737 Series - Not Fly-by-wire
B747 Classic - Not FBW
B757 Series - Only spoilers are FBW
B767 Series - Same as above
B777 = FBW

Have no clue about B717. Never worked on it.
