"So will Boeing pull the plug or on the contrary try to market it more agressively"
No, as long as Boeing has the 767 assembly line open they can easily produce a 767-200, 767-300 or 767-400. The 767 line will be open for many years to come, even after production of the 7E7 has commenced.
buys them to 764Tanker? AWACÂ´s?"
-767 is based on the 767-200 frame, there are 550 KC
-135s that need to be replaced. There will likely be HUNDREDS of KC767s built over the next 15-20 years, however due to the KC
-767s higher payload capability and better dispatch rate of the new aircraft the KC
-135s would not have to be replaced on a "one for one" basis with new KC
-767s to maintain current capability
what they are developing on the 767-400 frame is the EA
-10A, Multi Sensor Command and Control aircraft.
-10A is the future replacement for Joint Stars, Rivet Joints, Cobra Balls, TACAMO and possible AWACS aircraft in the USAF
inventory. The E-10 is also being considered as a replacement for the US Navy's EP
-3, they would utilize joint Air Force and Navy crews.
Possible number of EA
-10A aircraft for the USAF
, approximately 38.
