BOEING BEGAN FINAL ASSEMBLY OF ITS 1,000TH 767 JET ON MONDAY AT ITS EVERETT FACILITY

The US manufacturer has been building 767-family aircraft for 30 years and offers a tanker version to the US Air Force.

“It takes an incredible airplane to make it to the 1,000 unit,” Kim Pastega, general manager of the 767, told workers at a ceremony at the Everett plant Monday morning.

The 1,000th airplane also is the last 767 that will be built in the same area of the factory as the last 999. Boeing is moving the 767 line to the back part of the Everett factory to accommodate a temporary 787 surge line. That line will be in place until Boeing’s 787 final assembly line in North Charleston, S.C. is up and running.
