Boeing Celebrates Roll Out Of First 757 Special Freighter For DHL

Boeing employees celebrated the roll out of the first 757 Special Freighter (SF) for DHL Worldwide Express. DHL is expected to take delivery of the airplane next week at Boeing Airplane Services' Wichita facility, where Boeing employees modified the airplane from a passenger jetliner to a freighter.

The DHL program is an innovative fleet management solution in which Boeing Airplane Services will purchase 44 in-service 757 passenger airplanes, convert them to Special Freighter models, and provide them to DHL under a sale/multi-year lease arrangement.
