Kim Pastega, VP and GM of the 767 program, launches production of the 1000th 767.

Boeing has begun assembly work on the 1000th 767 with the placement of the aircraft’s wing spar into its assembly tool.

“This is an important milestone for the 767, which has continued to evolve and improve since entering service nearly 30 years ago,” said Kim Pastega, vice president and general manager of the 767 program.

The 1000th 767 is a -300ER model and will be delivered to All Nippon Airways in February 2011. ANA ordered its first 767 in 1979 and has taken delivery of 89 767s to date.
