Built to compliment the Boeing 747 as a smaller, long-range aircraft, the Boeing 767, upon its introduction in 1983, became a widely popular aircraft to fill the role of either long-haul flights, or short-haul, high-capacity operations. Today they’ve mostly been retired from front line roles with national carries, but continue to lead a charmed life with charter airlines.
