FedEx Shows Off New Jet

Oct 01, 2013 No Comments by

FedEx showed off its new Boeing 767 this past Saturday at the Memphis Air Show, held at the Millington Regional Jetport just north of Memphis, Tenn. The 767, the only one in FedEx’s fleet so far, made several low passes over the airport in front of a large crowd of spectators and Aviation Week’s cameras.

The 767 is a new type for FedEx, having taken delivery of its first one just 26 days ago. FedEx currently has 45 767s left on order and the type is expected to replace FedEx’s aging widebodies, namely its McDonnell Douglas MD-10s. FedEx’s 75th 757 was also on static display, giving attendees the chance to check out another relatively new type to FedEx’s fleet.
