    Boeing 767-300F

The 767-300F is the air freight model of the popular 767-300ER passenger twinjet, first ordered by UPS Airlines in 1993 and delivered in 1995.
The Boeing 767-300F can hold up to 24 standard 88 inch by 125 inch pallets or containers on its main deck and any arrangement of up seven 88 in by 125 in or 96 in by 125 in pallets or containers.
We meet here some characteristics like: two doors on the main deck plus three on the lower deck, the two upper doors comprise of one for the crew and one for the cargo. Of the three doors on the bottom, two are on the right side and one is at the rear left side.

In October 2007, All Nippon Airways (ANA) sent one of its Boeing 767-300 (JA8286) to ST Aviation Services Co., in Paya Lebar, Singapore, to undergo the world’s first 767 PTF (Passenger to Freighter) program. The conversion was completed, on schedule, in June 2008 and designated as a Boeing 767-300BCF, or "Boeing Converted Freighter".
All the improvements in aerodynamics, avionics, materials and propulsion that were developed for passenger versions of the 767 are integrated in the freighter.

Improved design

The design of this aircraft design provides exceptional fuel efficiency, low noise levels, operational flexibility, and an all-digital flight deck.
The renewed interest in the 767-300 freighter has Boeing considering improved models of the 767-200 and 767-300 freighter, with increased gross weights, 767-400ER wing technology, and 777-200 avionics.

Boeing sees the advanced 767-200F and 767-300F as complementing the 777F, and allowing Boeing to compete more effectively against the A330-200F, which is larger than the proposed 767-200F and 767-300F, but smaller than the 777F.

Due to its unique fuselage width of 15 ft 6 in, it is unable to carry ordinary Unit Load Devices, and instead has to use specially designed air freight containers and pallets.

This model has three doors on the maindeck plus two on the lower deck. Of the three doors on top, two are at the front, and one is at the rear right side. The two lower doors comprise of one at the right front and one at the rear left.

Total orders for Boeing 767-300F - 46 aircrafts

The conversion is scheduled to be accomplished in June 2008 and thereafter the plane will be designated as a Boeing 767-381 BCF, or "Boeing Converted Freighter".
As of December 2006, total orders for the Boeing -300/300ER/300F was- 688, of which 104 are for the -300 (104 delivered), 50 are for the -300F (46 delivered) and 534 are for the -300ER (514 delivered).

Total deliveries for the -300 variants are 664. The 767-300 is expected to be replaced by the 787-8 in Boeing’s lineup.
Boeing 767-300F changes include fortified undercarriage and wing structure, no cabin window, a cargo handling system and a main deck freight door. 
The Boeing 767 is a complete family of twin-engine aircraft suitable for medium and long range operations which can accommodate from 200 to 300 passengers as well as cargo in the 767 freighter variant. The first version, a 767-200, entered service in 1982 and its final delivery occurred in 1994. The 767 family has low fuel consumption and produces less pollutant per pound of fuel than other similar twin-engine aircraft.

Distinctiveness characteristics

Full control surface movements, Thrust reversers, Dynamic shine, Rolling wheels, , Detailed wing views, Compressing gear, Realistic dynamics, Opening doors, Flexing wings, Fs2002 style lighting, and a 3D Flight Attendant.
This is an improved version of the model which resolves a number issue people were having with gear doors and ailerons, better night lighting and some reworked textures have been included, which will stop components being transparent at night.

The structure of Boeing 767-300F employs aluminum, alloys and composite materials.

The 767 Freighter is associated, on the external exterior appearance, to 767 passenger airplanes, excluding the passenger windows and doors.

The -300F variant is outfitted with a main deck cargo door that allows to load container and/or pallets on the main cargo deck using either a manual cargo handling system or powered transfer system. It lacks windows and doors excepting a lateral entry door for crewmembers.

Landing gear

The aircraft is equipped with hydraulically operated, retractable tricycle-type landing gear. The forward retracting nose unit supplied by Menasco has twin wheels. The wheels are supplied by Honeywell.
The main landing gear has steel disc brakes and a hydraulically actuated tail skid.

A rigid barrier installed in the front end of the main deck serves as a restraint wall between the cargo and the flight deck. A door in the barrier wall permits in-flight access from the flight deck to the cargo area.
Boeing has been the world leader in civilian air cargo since the 707 Freighter was introduced more than 30 years ago. A total of seven customers have ordered 82 767-300 Freighters.
The flight deck, which has place for the pilot and co-pilot is similar to that of the Boeing 757. The aircraft’s flight instrument system is the Honeywell EFIS-700.The navigation suite includes Honeywell VHF omnidirectional radio, an integrated instrument landing system, and a marker beacon receiver, an automatic direction finder, distance measuring system and a radio magnetic indicator RMI-743. There are dual digital flight management systems and triple redundant flight control computers. The aircraft carries CAT IIIb landing certification.

"The 767 is the most widely used aircraft on cross-Atlantic routes."
Rockwell Collins has improved a large-format display system, which has been fitted in the 767-400ER.
The system contains six 203mm x 203 mm (8in x 8in) liquid crystal displays.
The 767 aircraft in service with All Nippon Airways, Britannia Airways and Transbrasil are fitted with the Honeywell RDR-4A colour weather radar.

The first Boeing 767-300F freighter was delivered by Boeing to United Parcel Service (UPS) in 1995.

On 2 August 2005, Chile-based LAN Airlines confirmed a firm order for six Boeing 767-300 airplanes to be added to another six 767s ordered in 2004. These 767s are a combination of 767-300ERs and 767-300Fs valued at $1.73 billion. The first of 12 aircraft was delivered in July 2005 and the final delivery is expected to be done by October 2008.
On 31 October 2005 Japanese carrier ANA confirmed an order for conversion of three Boeing 767-300 passenger aircraft into Boeing Converted Freighters (BCFs). The agreement included options on four aircraft. ANA would take delivery of its converted aircraft between December 2007 through October 2008. The freighter conversion program is based on the Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.

On 26 October 2006 Japanese carrier ANA exercised a contract option for two additional Boeing 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters. The first airplane will enter into the conversion program in April 2007 and will come out by December.
