Read in the caption- it's a 767-324. X24 is Continental's operator code, indicating that this plane was built for Continental Airlines. However, Continental certainly doesn't operate any 767-300s, and to the best of my knowledge never has. I didn't think they had ordered any.
SO- being the resourceful guy that I am, I searched the registry. Lo and Behold,
Operated by: NORTH AMERICAN AIRLINES (GECA)
Current rego: N767NA
So, it is a 767-324.
Who knows the story behind this? Did CO order them and then not take up? When? Why? Who was the ruling superpower of the time, Texas? Actually, delivery date is 1996- that's long after their financial woes. BUT- that does not indicate WHEN the plane was ordered. What's the story?
Thanks in advance.
