BOEING is studying a re-engined derivative of the 767 widebody primarily for the cargo market, with service entry slated for the mid-2020s, according to London's FlightGlobal.

A passenger version, which is also part of the study, could provide Boeing with a lower-cost alternative to its proposed New Mid-market Airplane (NMA).



FlightGlobal learned that the study, with project name 767-XF, is based on the 767-400ER platform and powered by GE Aviation GEnx engines.



To accommodate the larger-fan engines, the aircraft would incorporate extended landing gear to provide the necessary ground clearance.



Currently, the mid-size 30-60 tonne freighter market is mainly covered by B767-300Fs, B767-200Fs, B757-200Fs and A300Fs. All three Boeing aircraft are available on the conversion market, while Boeing also offers the B767-300ERF as a production aircraft.
