The end of the 767 era
I have flown hundreds of flights on the venerable 767, within north america, to asia, to europe. Today Air Canada flew their last one.
I always would check to see if I were flying on the most famous 767,the Gimli Glider, which retired in 2008. (For those who don’t know, a 767 became a glider for a long distance, safely landing, after a confusion on weight versus mass in fuel). It even got a Canada Post stamp (see the lack of engines).
It was because of the 767 that I learned what ETOPS stands for (Engines Turn Or Passengers Swim…. NOT!).
