Basically in a NUT shell, the first 5 original 767-277s delivered to Ansett in 1983-84 were delivered with 3 person crewed flight decks, which included an engineers station. These were the only 767s to be delivered this way. When Ansett's 767 order was placed, AFAP (Australian Federation of Air Pilots) and AAFEA (Australian Airline Flight Engineers Association) insisted that their aircraft be operated by two pilots and an engineer. Eventually all 5 were converted into standard a standard two pilot cockpit by the time Ansett went out of business.

Edit: Funny thing is the article had the AAFEA as Australasian and not Australian. Posted it 2 times mispelled as I thought it really was that (Shows how much I know about Australia.) Thought it looked odd, did a search on google just now and of course it's Australian!
