Boeing rolled out its 1,000th 767 Wednesday, an aircraft that will soon be delivered to All Nippon Airways. This milestone is notable as it's only the second time a widebody aircraft type has achieved this production milestone (after the 747). Yes, Airbus says they've delivered more than 1,000 A330/A340 family aircraft, as the European airframer has always counted combined serial numbers for each type, but data from Airbus puts the A330 around 755 and 375 for the A340.

Flight covered the roll-out of the first 767-200 - VA001 - in August 1981, by noting:
The standard 767 takes up to 289 charter passengers in an eight-abreast, 30in pitch configuration; the stretched version could be available from 1985 and All Nippon Airways of Japan has indicated a strong interest.
Yesterday's unveiling of JA622A will be ANA's 91st 767.
