Arrives In Seattle For Flight Testing Towards
Boeing and All Nippon Airlines celebrated the inaugural flight
of the first 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter this week, as well
as completion of the airplane's journey to Seattle on the
airplane's second flight.
The home city of Boeing Commercial Airplanes will be the base
for the 767-300BCF's flight test and certification activities that
will take place over the next few months.
After a first flight of just more than three hours April 9, the
airplane departed for Seattle April 10, from the ST Aviation
Services Co. (SASCO) facility at Paya Lebar airport in Singapore,
where the conversion from a passenger jet to a freighter took
place. The 50-tonne-capacity freighter flew nonstop to Seattle,
completing the 14-hour, 51-minute flight at 1013 PDT, the same day
but 15 time zones away.
Boeing Flight Operations pilots stationed in Seattle will
conduct the flight test program. Delivery and certification of the
freighter are expected in June.
The airplane is painted in the livery of Japan-based ANA, the
launch customer for the 767-300BCF, and the livery of ALLEX, a
joint venture between ANA, Nippon Express and Kintestsu World
