Finally. Google Streetview gets INSIDE a 757 cabin ( I think SAS started this a few months back with an A340 Streetview )

Aer Lingus have just responded with a 757 Streetview. Sadly I think the streetview cam got stuck in business class only.

I do not like Delta 767-400 business class seats. Too narrow at the shoulders, and not enough room for feet!

Your information is 5 years and 102 orders late.

Although it's pretty amazing that the 767-300F backlog is now bigger then it was in 2011. Thank you FedEx

Are the recent 300-f not conversions rather than new frames. The tankers are new frames I know.

FedEx now has 75 outstanding 767-300F orders with Boeing + 50 options, all new planes, no conversions. Boeing didn't announce a production increase for the 767 production from 2017 onwards for nothing.

But they are the online airline with outstanding 767 orders right now. The other 4 orders are by the USAF for the tankers, this number will also increase significantly over the next couple of years.

Probably 3rd production KC-46A VH007 frame.
VH005 is being finished in Fuel Dock and VH006 should be inside 40-24 on Position 1 undergoing re-work and furbishment to certification standard.

Amazon and their partner and possible subsidiary Air Atlas are rumoured to be looking at as many as 50 767-300F frames to deal with normal Amazon and the newer Amazon Prime same day delivery requirements.

http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/5/115...lease-shipping

To be honest I cannot see Fedex exercising their options now. Amazon are taking the business inhouse and Amazon are simply enormous and are investing $20bn in their hub and spoke warehouse network between 2015 and 2017 alone.

While one of the main Amazon warehouses in Europe is very near Luton Airport they appear to be expanding their logistics in Doncaster and East Midlands airports to the north of that instead.

Other airports slated for 767-300F hubbing are Kassel in Germany and Katowice in Poland with a rumour that Shannon and somewhere near Barcelona may be in the mix as well. I have heard nothing about their similar US plans other than a main central hub in Wilmington Ohio.

No wonder Boeing are looking at a production ramp for the 767F from 2017 onwards.

And Boeing booked 6 new 767F orders last week by an unidentified customer.

It will be amazing if it's not Fedex, but it's most likely will be as their previous orders were all listed as unidentified first.

It's Fedex:
Quote:
"FedEx Corp. is buying six Boeing 767 freighters valued at $1.2 billion as the world’s biggest cargo airline continues to modernize its fleet.
The six aircraft are scheduled for delivery in fiscal 2019 and 2020, according to a FedEx spokesman. They were among the options included in a 50-jet order that FedEx placed almost a year ago to help reduce operating costs and improve fuel efficiency. Discounts from list value are typical in the aerospace industry."

It looks like KC-46A is finally on straight road to service enter:
Quote:


KC-46 completes required flight tests

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) -- The KC-46 Pegasus program completed all flight tests required for the Milestone C production decision July 15 by offloading 1,500 pounds of fuel to an A-10 Thunderbolt II.

The successful A-10 mission was the last of six in-flight refueling demonstrations required before the tanker program can request approval from Frank Kendall, the under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, to award production Lots 1 and 2, totaling 19 KC-46A aircraft.

“It is great to see the KC-46 boom back in action and the program moving forward to a production decision” said Col. John Newberry, the KC-46 system program manager.

The other five required air refueling demonstrations were with the C-17 Globemaster III and F-16 Fighting Falcon using the air refueling boom, the Navy’s F-18 Hornet and AV-8B Harrier II using the centerline and wing drogue systems, and the KC-46 as a receiver aircraft.

"Today's flight marks the final step we needed to see on the boom fix in order to request production go-ahead,” said Brig. Gen. Duke Richardson, the Air Force program executive officer for tankers. “Our joint team's tireless efforts are paying off, preparing us for the next step of this critical need to our warfighter."

This test would not have been possible without contributions from the 412th Test Wing, 23rd Fighter Wing, 355th FW, 124th FW, 896th Test Support Squadron and 40th Flight Test Squadron, which all provided aircraft, manpower and equipment.

The Milestone C decision to begin low-rate initial production is expected in August.

First Amazon Prime airplane debuts in Seattle after secret night flight

The first freighter jet to carry the Amazon brand is primed for its public debut in Seafair’s sunny skies, after making a stealthy flight from New York to Seattle in the middle of the night.

“It’s hard for me not to be a little bit giddy, almost. This is the first time I’ve actually seen the plane in person,” Dave Clark, Amazon’s senior vice president of worldwide operations, said at a press preview that took place behind closed hangar doors at the Boeing Co.’s Seattle Delivery Center on Thursday.

The plane, emblazoned with “Amazon” on its belly, “Prime Air” on its sides and the Amazon smile logo on its tail, will fly over Lake Washington during the Boeing Seafair Air Show at around 1:15 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Until now, the big reveal was kept so hush-hush that Seafair organizers referred to the event only as a “Special Guest Flyover.”

The Boeing 767-300 jet is part of what will eventually become a fleet of 40 planes, transporting cargo between Amazon’s distribution centers for delivery to customers. Clark said the planes will mesh with Amazon’s network of 4,000 branded truck trailers, the Uber-like Amazon Flex delivery system, and the services provided by transportation partners such as UPS and FedEx.

“We’re doing this because of customers, and on behalf of customers,” Clark said.


Clark said Amazon’s main objectives are to streamline existing delivery operations and increase shipping capacity. Although Clark didn’t mention it, some Amazon customers have complained in the past about delivery delays during the holiday shipping rush, due to undercapacity at UPS and FedEx.

As Amazon becomes more familiar with the capabilities of its growing fleet, it may be able to offer enhanced delivery services, Clark said.

“Once you have a capability, you have options to build new products and services off it,” Clark told GeekWire. “So I think certainly once we have all 40 of these planes deployed, there’s the opportunity to create new connections for customers. Inventory that might not have been available next day suddenly could be available next day for customers. But really, it’s all about building core capacity for our Prime service for customers.”

He declined to go into the financial details behind the fleet’s creation, except to say that “we’re very comfortable in the economics of this program.”

Ten planes have been flying Amazon cargo under the terms of a lease agreement with Ohio-based Air Transport Services Group, or ATSG. The plane making its debut this week is the first to be painted in Amazon’s colors, however, and it’s the first to be leased from and operated by New York-based Atlas Air.

“It’s a big part of Atlas’ future, and it ultimately will become transformative for our company,” Atlas Air President and CEO William Flynn told GeekWire.

Atlas and ATSG’s air operations have long experience flying planes for cargo delivery services such as DHL. The air carriers’ agreements included provisions that allowed Amazon to buy stakes in each company.

Over the next couple of years, Atlas Air will be phasing in 20 Boeing 767-300s to carry Amazon’s freight, under the terms of a 10-year lease and a seven-year maintenance and operation contract. ATSG says its air services will eventually operate just as many planes for Amazon: 12 Boeing 767-200s that are covered by five-year leases, plus eight 767-300s with seven-year leases.

“We’re proud to say we flew the first flight for them under this setup, and we’re happy to fly many more,” Joe Hete, ATSG’s president and CEO, told GeekWire.

Hete smiled when it was pointed out that Atlas’ jet had the name “Amazon One” painted beneath the cockpit windows.

“This is Amazon 11, as far as we’re concerned,” he joked.

The Boeing 767s are being modified for Amazon’s use at Israel Aircraft Industries, based in Tel Aviv. The ATSG planes were given a generic paint job, but Atlas had its first plane painted to Amazon’s specifications at Premier Aviation in Rome, N.Y.

“I think it’s a great-looking livery, don’t you?” Flynn asked GeekWire.

Each of the Amazon-branded planes will be registered with a prime number, serving as an “Easter egg” reference to Amazon Prime. Amazon One’s tail registration number is N1997A – which includes a prime number that also denotes the year Amazon went public.

Amazon One's tail

To preserve the element of surprise, Amazon One took off from Griffiss International Airport in Rome well after dark on Tuesday, and flew through the night to reach Seattle’s Boeing Field well before dawn on Wednesday. It was kept in the hangar at the Seattle Delivery Center in preparation for its coming-out party at Seafair.

Clark said he was particularly proud to have the plane make its public debut in Amazon’s hometown, during Seattle’s most festive summer weekend. “To be able to be a part of that with our own aircraft is truly a special thing,” he said.

He said the hoopla over Amazon’s newest airliner also impressed his two sons.

“At least for this weekend, I get to be a very, very cool dad,” Clark said.
