BOEING and ANA, celebrated the inaugural flight of the first 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter, as well as completion of the airplane’s journey to Seattle on the airplane’s second flight. The home city of Boeing Commercial Airplanes will be the base for the 767-300BCF’s flight test and certification activities that will take place over the next few months.

The 50-tonne capacity freighter flew non-stop to Seattle, completing the 14-hour, 51 minute flight at 10.13 am, the same day but 15 time zones away.

Delivery and certification of the freighter are expected in June.
