One-Thousandth B767 Rolls Off The Line

Employees Past And Present Celebrate Landmark Airplane

There were a lot of proud smiles in Everett, WA, Wednesday as the 1,000th B767 was unveiled to hundreds of current employees, joined by Boeing retirees who worked on the first 767, all of whom had gathered to celebrate the occasion.

"It was great to see so many people here today - the engineers, the technicians, the machinists - who have made the 767 the wonderful airplane it is," said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "As we salute the 1,000th 767, the next 767 is already being built in a new bay where we can produce airplanes much more efficiently for years to come. We hope many of the new 767s will become U.S. Air Force tankers built right here."

The 1,000th airplane is a 767-300ER (extended range) passenger model for ANA (All Nippon Airways) and was the final 767 to complete assembly on the current production line. Final production work already is underway on the 1,001 unit in a new, smaller bay that repositions the production line toward a leaner, more efficient operation.
