Was A 757 Or 737 Rolled Out On 18OCT1991?

Tue Feb 03, 2009 3:33 am

I'm just wondering if there is a record of all the roll out dates plane-specific. An example (a made up example..) A B767 rolled out on August 16th, 2004. Or a delivery date.. If that makes any sense..

There is a record of all rollout dates for all programs, though i don't know if it's publicly available that far back... Did you have something specific in mind, or was it just a general question?

Normal production aircraft don't really have a "roll-out date". There's the date they come out of the final assembly line, but they're not done at that point (still need paint and testing). Delivery date is the more usual tracking point. There is a record of the shop-complete date, and delivery date, for each airframe.

Delivery dates are publicly available back to 1958:

But...this just tells you when a specific model delivered to a specific customer...it won't tell you which exact airframe it was. If you're good with looking up registries and fleet histories, you can make pretty good educated guesses as to which plane delivered on which date. The OEM's have this data in detail for every airframe, but it's not public.

If you search for all deliveries in October 1991, there was a RR-powered 757-200 delivery on 19 Oct 1991 to GPA Group (aka Guinness Peat Aviation). They're now part of ILFC, so the plane could be anywhere today.

EDIT: added specific info for Oct 1991

That particular aircraft is Boeing 757-2Y0 MSN 25268 LN400 initially XA-TAE with TAESA Lineas Aereas. Its currently with Thomson Airways as G-CPEP. This frame also spent time with Venus Airlines, Air Transat, British Airways, Air 2000/First Choice.

I just slapped my forehead in the middle of a meeting today when I remembered writing this...GPA became part of GECAS, not ILFC. Sorry for the bad info.

Thank you sir, and all other sirs.. I didn't find a specific 757 on my birth date, only the one you pointed out, the one that was delivered 19OCT1991, but I did find a 767-3 that was delivered exactly on my birth date. PH-MCK was delivered on that date but given to Lauda as OE-LAT which it's registration was changed a few times then back to OE-LAT. It is now named Enzo Ferrari..

Thank you all for your help! ! !

The 887th 747 which was a 747-400 going to Cathay Pacific rolled out of the Everett Factory on October 18, 1991. Don't know the reg on that one though.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
