FedEx 767 In Storage At PAE

Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:51 am

A brand new 767 for FedEx has been painted all white and went into (short term?) storage at PAE. Why is that?

ATDB says it's scheduled for delivery in April, but it looks a bit like they only got half way through painting the rudder!

I suppose April was the original delivery date, you're not going to paint an aircraft all white and mothball it just to deliver it the next month.

But their paint job is basically all-white fuselage anyway. It certainly looks as though it was built in time for an April delivery. Perhaps FedEx have deferred delivery for some reason? Just guessing.

Then it would have emerged from final assembly with engines installed. It does not have engines, and cockpit windows and pylons are taped. And when new aircraft go to paint, the full livery is applied. Why paint it two times, unless it goes into storage?

The 767 production line is steady at one a month for the 767. Boeing only has the USAF and FedEx for customers. It is quite possible that the customers don't want delivery smoothly at the current production rate. It is very costly for Boeing to change the production rate.

It is not unheard of for an airline to want to postpone delivery. This time of year is the slowest time of the year for FedEx. Cash flow drops in the first half of the year for FedEx. Revenue drops while maintenance costs skyrocket since all their planes go through check. It would not surprise me if FedEx is not particularly interested in delivery slots during the early part of the year. They don't really need the airplane until October, so do they really want to put it on the balance sheet now?

Usually there are enough customers so that Boeing and Airbus build airplanes without storing them as they shuffle the production schedule. The 767 is a bit unique. If FedEx doesn't want steady deliveries throughout the year, then Boeing may have to build a plane and store it for 6-9 months.

When does the clock start for an aircraft like this being delayed? Do the compenents get a few months free ride or is it counting against the life as soon it is out of the door? Sub question, are hours of use more important than time duration?

Thank you

There is a whole section of the maintenance manual referring to long term storage. For the most part proper storage before delivery stops the clock on any of the structural items that are calendar based. Interior items like fire extinguishers, oxygen bottles, etc keep the clock moving even when stored.

It isn't, though I'm surprised to learn that an airline that just ordered 50 767F jets is now deferring some.

Any idea why Boeing didn't allocate another aircraft? If delivery isn't until October, they could have allocated a newer 767 on the line. Normally OEMs build their airplanes pretty close to the delivery date.

If Boeing is building planes faster than the customer is scheduled to accept them, then it's not really a deferral.  

I believe roseflyer has correctly identified the reason. It's possible slowing the build of that frame would have impacted the production of follow-on KC-46As and 767-300Fs so even having to absorb the storage costs themselves would be less of an issue.

Do we know FedEx is deferring them? This may have been planned all along. FedEx may have wanted to take 12 planes this year but asked for most of them delivered in the second half.

Boeing is building 2 767s per month. Essentially one for FedEx and one for USAF. FedEx production slots fit in between the USAF slots that were assigned years ago. Boeing can't move around and reallocate airplanes for the 767 because they have only two customers. If FedEx for example wants 2 767s in the first quarter, 2 in the second, and then 4 in the third and 4 in the forth because it works better for their balance sheet, cash flow and financing, Boeing would have to store a couple since they are building 3 per quarter.

I'm sure they'l take it before October. They have retired 3 A-310 in the past few weeks.

The airframe in question doesn't look like it's been repainted all white, rather it's just simply not painted (as the incomplete assembly indicates: lack of engines, even parts of the vertical stab not together)

My guess is that something is happening with the tanker program and they needed to wheel this airframe out of the assembly building ASAP to make room.

FedEx may be "fiddling" (in a legal way) with its financials to hit Wall Street quarterly estimates.

It never ceases to amaze me what kinds of bizarre short-term things companies will do to try to hit numbers around the end of a quarter or year. Banning overtime or cutting labor hours, not ordering or paying for inventory, delaying capex (as it seems in this case). Obviously it just hits the next period's numbers, but that doesn't seem to stop executives from doing it.

Who would they give this aircraft to though? As Roseflyer mentioned Fedex is the primary customer for the 767 (the USAF technically currently only has 4 on order right now). Who else would they build a February/March 767 for? Plus Fedex may want 12 767s in the 3Q, while Boeing can only build ~6 in that time frame, which means they have to build them earlier and store them. Production is going to stay relatively constant throughout the year, even if delivery demand is not.

Yet it doesn't address the question about why you'd put the aircraft into the paint bay to paint it white, without finishing the rest of the livery while it was in there.

We've been told in the past that the 'green' anti-corrosion protector doesn't stand up outdoors so a coat of white was needed if it is to be outdoors for any appreciable period.

The next question is why not finish the job when it's in the paint bay?

Perhaps they just couldn't occupy the paint bay for the extra time.

I don't know the answer. The FedEx paint scheme is white, so that is relatively easy. They may have delayed putting on the decals and painting the vertical stabilizer. Airlines can be very particular about their paint being perfect at delivery. If it will be stored for 6 months, they may want it painted closer to delivery so that it looks better.

If it was not painted the airplane would have been in primer (see photo below).

The white coat is paint and is usually being applied when an aircraft goes into storage.

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that FX schedules their aircraft deliveries very specifically to minimize the number of aircraft that are down for HMVs at any specific time.

What source do you have that they are cancelled? As far as I am aware they are stored until FX is ready to accept them. Being basically the only commercial customer (the only?) for the 767, and with a fixed 767 production rate, Boeing has to continuously make 767Fs for FX even when they don't necessarily want them (for whatever reason; slow season, would result in inconvenient maintenance schedules, etc) and store them until FX is ready.

Fedex had received later planes N134FE to N140FE

Thanks for you information

Were these two planes suspended by some reasons can not be solved immediately during construction?

Likely didn't want them when they were built, didn't want anymore in the later months than what they recieved, and decided that it was just easier to delay these two planes longer rather continuously doing smaller delays on a bunch of later planes.

My Fedex source confirms same. Certainly not cancelled but ATDB info should be taken with a pinch of salt anyway.

I regularly update my own Boeing Production spreadsheets of the B747, B777, B767 and B737NG/MAX,

Sources: Pudget Sound test flights, Planespotters.net data center, Woody's Aeroimages, Matt Cawby, several twitter accounts and most important a network of inside and outside sources that informs me via email or PM.

I would think that CAM and/or Titan would be interested in any new-build 763Fs that might be available for immediate purchase...
