This article describes two new commercial turbofan aircrafts designed by Boeing. The 767 is a brand new twin-engine aircraft sized physically between the standard-body jets like the 727 and the wide-body DC-10 and L-1011. It is, in effect, a "medium-widebody" airplane. Fitted with a wing of advanced design and quiet, fuel-efficient engines, it will cut airline seat/mile costs substantially. The twin-engine, medium-range 757 combines the fuselage width of the 707/727/737 airplanes with the advanced-technology wing and new engines to give the best fuel mileage of any airliner in its class.
