White 767-300 In Taipei?

Sun Apr 27, 2003 3:57 pm

Hello all. Last night (Saturday night 26-4-03) passing through TPE, an all white 767-300 was rolled out of the EVA Air hangars. It had a small logo/flag by the door L1 and seemed to have a registartion. Alas it was too dark to read off. Does anyone know what the registration was? It is possible it is an EVA 767-300, but why would they roll it out all white? I hadn't heard of them storing any or returning any. Besides, it had a small logo on it.

Also, does anyone know the registration of the Global Express I saw as well? It seemed as though it had landed that afternoon/evening. It has some thin light stripes and the registration on the upper tail. Thanks.

cx flyboy, BR is set to receive their first a330 sometime in june. their plan is to replace the 767's on a one to one basis. perhaps the 767 you saw is the first to be white tailed? I travel out of TPE frequently and will have to look for this the next time I depart. thanks for the info.
