JA8362, an ex-ANA Cargo BCF that was purchased by CAM a couple of months ago, has now been reregistered as N431AZ, and so will be flying for Amazon. (Thanks to MO11 for the heads-up on the Amazon Fleet thread.) Probably will be sent to paint shortly. Per planespotters.net: LN285. 1989 build. Converted 2008.

Tue Feb 25, 2020 9:45 am

Some confusion popped up over the exact 767 firing order :

According Matt Cawby L/N1205 is a KC-46A, see : http://www.paineairport.com/kpae18202b.htm
According Chris Edwards L/N 1205 was een Fedex 767-300F - N270FE
However according the latest info from Chris now N270FE seems to be L/N 1206 ????
See : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

Question : What aircraft are exactly allocated to L/N 1204, 1205 and 1206 ?

L/N 1207 seems to be the first KC-46A for the JSDF
L/N 1208 unk
L/N 1209 C/N 65791 B767-300F N371UP UNITED PARCEL SERVICE (VR299)

"Question : What aircraft are exactly allocated to L/N 1204, 1205 and 1206 ?"

Hi, first post here!
I currently work for Boeing on the 767 program as a mechanic so here is some first hand insight...

L/N 1200-1210:

1200: KC-46A Pegasus
1201: Federal Express
1202: KC-46A Pegasus
1203: United Parcel Service
1204: Federal Express
1205: KC-46A Pegasus
1206: Federal Express
1207: KC-46A Pegasus
1208: Federal Express
1209: United Parcel Service
1210: KC-46A Pegasus

I am unsure about the next ten (L/M 1211-1221) but I do know L/N 1213 is a KC-46A...

Hope this helpls!

I think it's quite remarkable that L/N 215 went to conversion. On last year's thread, there was some speculation, whether aircraft like N171DN with lots of flight hours, say more than 130,000, would be converted. As it turns out, C-FCAE has got more than 139,000 flight hours and nearly 25000 flight cycles, see https://twitter.com/tompodolec/status/1175911968521297922 and https://www.morson.com/blog/2019/11/air-canada-retires-boeing-767-after-an-amazing-139000-hours-of-flight. Could it be the 767 fleet leader in terms of flight hours?

It was registered to the Rockets in January 2019. Before that it was stored at BKK after being withdrawn from service with Asia Atlantic Airlines. Can't find any news about it, so guessing it was purchased by Houston and flown from BKK to MZJ for overhaul and outfitting.

From the 744 retirement thread, someone brought up C-FCAE and said it was the fleet leader in terms of hours. Flew it in July, it was definitely showing its age. Guess the lack of decent feedstock is seeing operators taking the less than desirable frames - it wasn't that long ago that Cargojet seemed to be going to a all -300 767s, now they're adding -200s again. Those ex- CO -200s are still young though, so they make some sense

ANA Cargo hands over third 767-300BCF to Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM).

Aircraft data : 767-381ER(BCF), L/N 269, C/N 24400, JA8286, delivered at June 26th 1989, P2F converted June 16th 2008.
JA8286 was ferried at March 02th from Tokyo (HND) via Anchorage (ANC) to Wilmington (ILN) for conformity, see : https://flightaware.com/live/flight/JA8 ... /PANC/KILN
Following conformity, the aircraft is expected to be dry-leased to UPS.

See : https://cargofacts.com/allposts/equipme ... cf-to-cam/

Note :
All UPS 767 aircraft are powered with GE CF6-80C2B6F engines, with FADEC.
JA8262 has been factory delivered with GE CF6-80CB6 engines, the non-FADEC version.

Non-FADEC GE CF6-80C2 engines, as installed on early built 767-200/300 aircraft, were (cable) controlled by a Woodward Main Engine Control (MEC), supervised by Power Management Control (PMC).
All later -F models (FADEC) are controlled by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU).

CF6-80C2 Non-FADEC and FADEC engines are NOT interchangeable.

Only during a total engine overhaul a FADEC engine can be modified into a non-FADEC engine and the other way around, because many sensors (for input to the FADEC) are integrated in the engine casing, conseq a new engine casing has to be obtained.

Question : Has ANA changed the engines and engine interfaces (P/L cables, P/L drum, ATS, etc) to the later full FADEC configuration ? A very expensive solution with only a 1% TSFC gain.

Íf not, why would UPS add a non standard aircraft configuration ?

Yeah that Cargojet move is puzzling. Either they got a super cheap conversion slot for the last 20,000 hours on the aircraft,or....

They LITERALLY could have decided to convert any other 767 on the planet and had more useful life left.

150,000 was the anticipated LOV according to this doc: I seem to remember 160,000 is current though.

These two 767s were originally built for South African Airways. Yes I remember when they had 767s, but those didn't last very long.

No those two were not built for SAA, but CO, the correct codes for those planes are -224ERs; he has a lot of typos in that post.

You are totally right, both are ex CO with Boeing customer code 24.

No it was not!

Although -375 is Pacific Western Airlines customer code they never flew this one. It was built for Canadian Airlines International for the simple reason PWA had already bought CP Air when construction of this frame was started.

N477AX of Omni was damaged on 8th of March in a hard landing at Shannon, on arrival from Bangor. The usual creased skin in the crown on the forward fuselage.

N477AX, 767-3Q8ER, L/N 870, C/N 29390 was leased by Omni Air from AerCap from May 17th 2016 until Dec 2019, thereafter leased from Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM).
Most probably the aircraft was purchased by CAM for a future P2F conversion.
See : https://www.planespotters.net/airframe/ ... nal/eg8oyr
The aircraft was delivered at Feb 2002 and is relative young and has to be restored in an airworthy condition before return to the lessor (CAM) or in this case may taken back and after a temporally repair will be ferried to TLV for a P2F conversion to reduce the repair costs.
Time will tell what happens.

Omni and CAM are part of ATSG, it could just mean that ATSG is buying over the plane while keeping an option on whether to convert it or not. Better not to lose a good frame already under your own care to another lessee or buyer.

All but one or two of the aircraft operated by Omni are now owned either by CAM or by Omni Aviation Leasing, which of course is now owned by ATSG.

ATSG has largely left Omni alone to do its thing the way it always has, so MRO work on its aircraft are mostly still accomplished at its usual places. Whether it gets repaired there or at Flightstar, which did the creased Atlas and Delta birds, I don't know.

N299FE is now at our maintenance base in Indy. It is getting it's pre-service check and being modified for the heads up display and sat-com. The radome has been removed and will be shipped back to Boeing for installation on a later ship. It takes about two weeks of work to get the ship ready for it's flight to test the heads up display. After that flight, if it passes the test, it will go into revenue service. Over all, they are good planes and it is a pleasure to work on a new build aircraft. One item we are finding is that the wing lower trailing edge wiggle panels are cracking at the wing jack pad point. If anyone has experience with this on ships for other carriers, drop a line to let me know. Just curious if other carriers have this problem and how they addressed it.

All not already allocated registrations N187FE until/incl N301FE have been reserved by Federal Express. (N302FE allocated to MD10-30F)

N184FE, N185FE, N186FE and N111FE have been allocated to Boeing already for the next to be produced FX 767-300F aircraft.

Registration N111FE was occupied until 11/07/2013 and bypassed, but will also be re-used for an FX 767-300F, MSN 64060 , see : https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquir ... rtxt=111FE

Skyliners is slipping.

The last item turns out to be wrong. 544LA wasn't converted. It was purchased by CAM. But it still has windows, and no cargo door. What it does have is a fresh all-white coat of paint, and, oddly, the Boeing 767-300ER logo painted near the tail in Boeing typeface, as if it is intended to be flown as a passenger plane in all-white. It is now at ILN. We'll see what happens next.

And JA8286 is for CAM; whether it ends up being leased by CAM to UPS is I think still speculation. One of its sisters did get leased by CAM to UPS, but the other, while purchased by CAM, did not. That one (formerly JA8362), went to Amazon as N431AZ, and has yet to be repainted or fly under its new number despite sitting at ILN since November.

ex JA8362 and ex JA8286 are both early model 767-300ER aircraft and powered by non FADEC GE-CF6-80C2B6 engines (not interchangable with FADEC engines !) and other SOP's.
ex JA8356 (CAM lsd to UPS with registration N394UP) is powered by GE-CF6-80C2B6F engines, like all UPS aircraft.
