The Boeing 767 was Boeing’s first twin-engine wide body jet airliner and became very popular on the world’s airways. The first version, the 767-200, entered service in 1982 and 59 remained in service in July 2012.
The Boeing 767 began as design studies in 1972 for an airliner to replace the older Boeing 707.
This evolved into at twin aisled medium range and capacity airliner similar to the Airbus A.300.
It was launched in July 1974, planned to be produced in three versions of different lengths of which the 767-200 was the first and shortest.
The prototype made its maiden flight on 26 September 1981 and the first one entered airline service in September 1982.
A total of 249 767-200s were produced before construction was ended in favour of the more advanced Boeing 767-300ER.
