No wing pods. Interesting.

Those are already painted. For security, they removed them and the boom.

Nothing surprising. 767 with 2-3-2 in economy is much more comfortable plane to fly than 787 with 3-3-3 in economy. Of course, there are details like humidity, cabin pressure, bigger windows, lower noise due to new engines and bleedless system that are making 787 more appealing, but 767 is still very comfortable plane to fly.

Look at Austrian Airlines 767 interiors, 1-2-1 business and 2-3-2 economy. OE-LAT is nearly 24 years old and after refurbishment looks inside like brand new plane. You have all funky IFE system, lie-flat seats, LED lights and new bins.

Yep, this makes sense.
So they will probably move 3rd KC46A test frame inside the EMC for re-work.

Why Boeing does not produced the B757 anymore ? There is missing markt segment which will be filled only by Airbus A321 LR.

It has been out of production for many years now due to decreased interest and the aircraft manufacturer wanting to produce more fuel-efficient aircraft. The B737MAX may help bridge the gap for the B757 production, yet I think the B757 has been a unique aircraft type as it is an intermediate aircraft for long flights before heading up to the larger B767, B777, and B747.

There should be a modernized fuel-efficient version of B757 like B757 Max

Boeing doesnt think there is a big enough market for another 757 type plane.... which kind of makes sense. But then you go on flightradar24.com and see how many 757 are still flying. I guess Boeings answer could be BS.

But 757 is my fav looking plane ...so i would be all for it.

My only guess is that Boeing want to force customers to buy the 787 as it bridges the gap that the 757 and 767 perfectly. Boeing is putting its R&D behind the 787 & 777-X i think.

Thats the only logical reason in my mind.

BOE1 (767-2C) will be heading back to PAE today for Fuel Dock testing and Test Boom install. Should be there for the next week or so.

I couldn't be there today when the 767-2C Prototype landed at PAE. But my friend Andrew was able to grab a great shot of it on final. This is the first flight with the Boom and WARP's installed.

So they fully equipped first test frame. With 2nd one nearly complete, 2 more will be waiting for re-work.
I wonder if Boeing will be able to deliver these frames to USAF.

All 4 test frames will fly by years end, with the actual 1st KC46A test plane making its first flight in July. Boeing will deliver 2 KC-46A's and 2 767-2C's to the Air Force. They will evaluate them as they do with all new military aircraft and then proceed with the commitment to build.

So it's not a full military version for now. They will probably re-work it again after test flight completion.

767-2C at the Fuel dock this morning with Boom installed.

767-2C at the Fuel dock this evening with Boom lowered. You can see it in between the tooling. They moved trailers in to block the view. They will be doing fuel tests for the next week to 2 weeks at FD #1.
