The Shape of Things to Come for the Boeing 767-400ER

Boeing mechanics bolt new wing tips designed for the 767-400ER (extended range) airplane in a trial run to verify that the parts fit. The patented, swept-back wing tips improve the overall aerodynamic efficiency of the 767 wing. The wing tips will be permanently installed on the airplane just before it rolls out of the factory this summer. The first 767-400ER is scheduled to deliver in May 2000.
