For the record the AN 767-200 aircraft where originally ordered for delivery in 1982 with a 3 man hard wired cockpit
The first crews where trained by Boeing in the B767-200 hare wired simulator.
Due to a downturn in traffic the aircraft were not delivered until 1983, during intervening period the Presidential Enquiry into crew complement took place ,probably due to the Airbus A300 being certified with 2 crew.
The outcome of the equiry paved the way for Boeing to certify the 757 with 2 crew and subsequent recertification of the 767-200 with 2 crew.
