Boeing 767-100 - Pictures/Drawings?

Sun Oct 07, 2001 6:29 am

I've read about Boeing's 767-100 that was supposed to b launched together with the 767-200. The -100 was supposed to b shorter, but how much shorter? I think the -200 is short and stubby enough:  Smile

So does anyone know how much shorter it was supposed to be, and are there any drawings/shecmatics of it online?

(I presume a 757-100 was planned originally too)

THe -100 was never planned, the -100 is the -200.

IMO, it would look like the a310- stumpy. I like the A310, and stumpy looks cool sometimes, but I don't know how the 761 would've done.

There was never a planned -100 of the 757, 767, or 777. The -100s didn't sell very well. Boeing named the first derivative of a certain aircraft -200 to just attract customers.

Sos, bud, but the 761 was planned during development of the 762, but it came too close in capasity to the 752.

The 761 and 751 were never more than possible paper derivatives. The initial models were the 762 & 752.

At the time of their development (1978-1982 or so), the 721, 731 & 741 were all out of production and faring poorly on the used market...they were 'unfashionable' as airlines focused in the 722, 732, 742. There was the fear that a 761 or 751 would sell poorly right from the start. So Boeing used the -200 as the base model from then on.

There indeed WAS a -100 version of the 777 planned. The demand just never materialized.

There was only talk about a 771. Was offered to SIA as an A310 replacement. SIA was not interested.

Yyz717 got it right. -100 variants were unpopular. The 707-100 was a big time gas guzzler lights years behind the classic 707-320, 727-100 not so bad but smaller aircraft than the -200 and about the same costs, 737-100 was a virtual nonstarter that sold about 30 copies (shorter body, problems with reverse thrust, landing flaps, engine nacelles; never delivered to a US airline), 747-100 was an underpowered maintenence nightmare with constant and expensive engine problems.

I was surprised to see Airbus christen the first A320 variant the -100, don't know if there are that many or if they are a lot less sought-after in the second-hand market, but they don't have winglets / wingtip fences so there was obviously SOME behind-the-scenes scrambling to improve the basic machine. The 757 and 767 (and 777) have kind of justified starting out with the -200 tag by not apparently needing any improvement in 20 years unlike their predecessors.

As stated previously, the Boeing 777-100 was indeed considered. It was to be a shorter bodied version that could fly upwards of 9000 nautical miles. It was pushed as a solution for Singapore Air in its desire to fly Singapore-LAX non-stop. At the time, the thought was that this would be an ultra-long low density route. SIA did not go for it. Unknown to many, American Airlines was one of the biggest proponents of the 771. They were hoping to have it developed because of their intention of becoming a bigger player on the Pacific routes. They wanted to do DFW-SYD non-stop as well as NYC-SYD and ORD-SYD. However, they knew that they would not have the passenger demand to fill 772's or 744's. Oh well.

Not true - There definately was a 767-100 planned, with a 180 passenger capacity. This is well documented. And as others have said, a 777-100 appears to have been thought of as well.

Manufacturers don't just start on 200 because it sounds cool. Usually the suffixes denote the stretching or shortening (ignoring the 737 middle generation) - A -200 model is usually shorter than a -300 for example. This is just to make room ahead of time for a shortening, if there is a demand. One example is the A330-100, that has been talked about but then was dropped as well.

Of course the A32X series has its own strange system...  Smile

Sorry Transwede, I disagree.

I can remember the Boeing comments specifically in the devt stage of the 757/767...around 1978/79....saying they were concerned about the sell-ability of any -100's series aircraft. The 752/762 thus became the baseline aircraft. The lightly discussed 751/761 never were serious models.

Yyz717, I never said that they were serious proposals. They obvously didn't get very far since they made such little sense. (At least the 767-100). I *know* it was dropped really early in the 767 design.

I just wanted to see some specs for curiositys sake...  Smile

You might want to try the Airlife's Airliners book on the 767 (if there is one yet). If there were drawing of the 761, they'd be in there.

Hey! What about the 717? It starts at -200 because Boeing reserved -100 for a new DC-9-10.

There WAS a planned 757-100. the first variant drawn on paper in 1981. It actually looked much like an A320. I saw a diagram of it somewhere but I forget where. I know it wasn't the Boeing site,

Boeing scrapped the idea because the airlines showed no interest. They were happy with their 727s at the time which the 757-100 was supposed to replace.

Hey Aloha 732...here's some Aloha trivia for you.

The 752 is only offered with RR & PW engine options. However, Boeing/GE briefly offered the CFM32 as a 752 engine option around 1980. The only airline to order the GE 752 was Aloha...they ordered 3. The recession of 81/82 caused them to cancel the order....no other airlines showed interest and the GE option was quietly dropped.
