October 31, 1999
Web posted at: 6:10 a.m. EST (1110 GMT)

From Correspondent Miles O'Brien

ATLANTA (CNN) -- Boeing first rolled out the 767 in 1982.

The FAA in 1990 certified the twin-engine medium/long range turbo fan for extended twin engine operations (ETOPS), allowing it to fly transoceanic routes that take the aircraft farther than 3 hours from a runway.

The Boeing 767-300ER (extended range) that is missing typically can carry 269 passengers, though it can be configured to carry as many as 350 passengers.

EgyptAir owns three 767-200ER's and two 767-300ER's. All the planes are equipped with Pratt and Witney high bypass turbofan PW 4060 engines. Each is capable of providing 60,000 lbs of thrust.

Flight crew includes a captain and first officer.

Some specifics about the plane:

  • Plane length is 180 ft. 3 inches.
  • Height: 52 feet
  • Cabin volume: 17,088 cubic feet
  • Baggage Hold: 3,600 cubic feet
