After all those numerous threads about the 787, it would be nice to pay attention to the older Boeing 767. On September 26th 1981, the first Boeing 767 made its maiden flight out of the assembly plant in Everett WA. Three decades have passed and the airplane is still widely in use with a lot of major airlines.

And here is a link to the article I wrote about the airplane on my website, if you are interested.
Any story about one of your first flights on the type, whether as a passenger or a crew member, you would like to share is welcome .
I remember when my father flew on one with United back in 1982 or 1983 can't remember exactly when, probably 1982 because at the time he flew on it only United was flying it. At the time it was an all new airplane. He brought me home the safety card. I remember asking him the question back then when I was 12: "Does only United fly the 767?" "For the time being, yes" He answered me.
My first ride on the airplane was with American from MCO to DFW in 1988.
