With the Advanced Tanker being based on a derivative of the future 767-200LRF we know that somewhere in the near future this airplane will be offered to customers. Hopefully the high air cargo demand and the lack of competition in the 60 Ton segment will see an continued increases interest in the 767-200LRF program. IMO I believe Boeing could easily sell 100-200 767 Freighters within a period of five years. there are not any competition yet, and I wonder how many A330F Airbus can produce. It seems like they are producing what they can right now.
As for my questions in this thread, I was wondering if someone could enlighten us all about what to expect for the LRF program.
1: Initially there was talk about both a 767-200LRF and a -300LRF would be offered. Will both planes be offered for sale?
2: does anybody have any idea when Boeing will start offering the 767-LRF to costumers?
3: When can we expect the 767-LRF to entry into service?
4: What is the MTOW and range of the 767-LRF?
If some of you have any information on this subject it will be much appreciated. I believe that the future on this program depends much on the tanker program, but still someone should have thought about when to offer this plane, and when it should enter service.
