Bahrain acquires 767-400ER testbed for VIP use


http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/article.aspx?liArticleID=321681&PrinterFriendly=true


The government of Bahrain has acquired the Boeing 767-400ER that was to be used as the testbed for the airframer's E-10 multi-mission command and control platform. Boeing built the 767-400ER as a testbed for systems integration on the E-10, but was forced to cancel the programme in 2007 because of funding constraints.


The 767-400ER, pictured at nearby Boeing Field international airport, has since been re-registered A9C-HMH and will replace Bahrain's VIP Boeing 747SP in service

En remplacement d'un quadri... un bi !
Présage pour Airforce One ? Razz

Avion limité en capacité fioul 91 000 l ce qui fait que sa distance franchissable max reste est de peu supérieure à 6500 NM même en réduisant la charge PAX...
Du même ordre de grandeur que le 747SP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747SP


A voir si le E-10 ne comprenait pas des réservoirs de soute... (90-92 t de fioul soit > 110 000 l)...

Merci !
Un test bed en V.I.P., du travail pour retirer un gros paquet de matériels sensibles !
Si ce n'était déjà fait. Cool

Non, l'avion n'a jamais été équipé. Comme pour les ravitailleurs, les avions sont construits normalement sur la chaine de montage (comme des avions pax ou cargo classiques) pour être ensuite équipés ailleurs. Mais cet avion n'a jamais quitté Paine Field depuis son assemblage, sauf pour ses vols d'essais.

Bonsoir les amis,

Voici un avion qu'il est pas encore mort !
Non mais !

American completes first 767 revenue flight with blended winglets
By Lori Ranson
American Airlines today completed the first flight of a Boeing 767-300ER with blended winglets supplied by Aviation Partners Boeing.

Flight 78 left Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on 8 March at 8:35 p.m. with 204 passengers onboard, landing ahead of schedule on 9 March at London Heathrow.

American is the launch customer for the 11ft tall blended winglets on the 767-300ER, and APB partner GKN during the 2008 Farnborough air show said it plans to build 450 winglet shipsets for the 767-300ER, forecasting a build rate of 16 per month during peak production.

American says APB estimates each winglet-equipped aircraft should save up to 500,000 gallons of fuel annually depending on miles flown, which could result in a total savings of 29 million gallons annually.

Other attributes of the winglets highlighted by American include a 277,000 metric ton reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and an increase in aircraft range of 360nm. The improved take-off performance of the aircraft could generate up to 12,000lbs of additional payload.

The carrier's in-house maintenance team completed installation of the winglets, and expects to modify all of American's 58 767-300ERs by 2011. Winglet installations are already complete on the airline's 124 757s and 77 737s.


Donc concerne tous les 767-300ER d'AAL !
+360 NM de rayon d'action ou +6T de charge utile
Par contre je ne comprends pas trop en quoi les performances de décollages peuvent être améliorées ? En conditions hot et high ?

Réflexion :
KC767 + winglets et PW, contre KC30 et CF6 : le différentiel d'efficacité en terme de consommation doit être plus réduit...

Après American, c'est au tour de Austrian d'adopter les blended winglets pour 767:

Bonjour à tous

Risque de surchauffe et d'explosion de vapeur de carburant dans le réservoir central des 767.
Conséquence de l'explosion de TWA800.

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 767
airplanes. This AD requires installing an automatic shutoff system for the auxiliary fuel tank override/jettison fuel pumps (also referred to as center tank fuel pumps in the airplane flight manual (AFM)), revising the AFM to advise the flightcrew of certain operating restrictions for airplanes
equipped with an automatic auxiliary fuel tank pump shutoff control, and, for certain airplanes, installing a placard to alert the flightcrew of certain fuel usage restrictions. This AD provides optional terminating actions for certain requirements. This AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are issuing this AD to prevent an overheat condition outside the center tank fuel pump explosion-resistance area that is open to the pump inlet, which could cause an ignition source for the fuel vapors in the fuel tank and result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.

Au chapitre des coûts et des temps de main d'oeuvre



Costs of Compliance
We estimate that this AD affects 414 airplanes of U.S. registry. The following table provides the
estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this AD. The fleet cost could be as high as
$4,655,016.

De 3 à 29 heures de main d'oeuvre soit entre 660 et 11300$ par avion.

C'est finalement assez peu...

Bonne journée

Bonjour à tous

Les winglets au delà des espérances...

Air New Zealand's Blended Winglets Delivering 19% Greater Fuel Savings

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(October 13, 2009) -- Air New Zealand's new blended winglets, which are being fitted to its fleet of Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, are delivering 19 per cent higher fuel savings than forecast.

The airline's original expectations were that more than six million litres of fuel would be saved annually with the installation of new performance-enhancing blended winglets on its fleet of five Boeing 767 aircraft.

However, with four aircraft now fitted with the winglets, fuel savings are 19% higher than predicted, with the fleet now expected to reduce fuel usage by more than seven million litres and 18,400 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.

The blended winglets, which have been developed by Aviation Partners Boeing, are 3.4 metre high wing-tip devices. They make the aircraft's wing more efficient by reducing drag, increasing lift and significantly improving fuel use and reducing emissions.

"The installation of the blended winglets is part of Air New Zealand's on-going drive to be the world's most environmentally sustainable airline," says General Manager Airline Operations Captain David Morgan.

Air New Zealand has been at the forefront of finding ways to minimise its environmental impact, examining every aspect of its flight operations to reduce carbon emissions by saving fuel.

"Our approach is constantly evolving as we continue to evaluate our operations and identify new opportunities and new technologies," says Mr Morgan.

In addition to significant fuel savings and reduction in carbon emissions, the blended winglets provide additional commercial benefits for aircraft operating services on longer sectors, including enabling the aircraft to climb faster and improving payload performance.

The final aircraft is now being refitted and will be back in service in early November.


Intéressant...
Je serais preneur d'une comparaison entre l'efficacité des raked wingtip du -400ER et les winglets d'APB sur les -300ER

Bonne journée
