Press Release Summary: Singapore Technologies Aerospace Ltd (ST Aerospace), Boeing
[NYSE: BA] and All Nippon Airways (ANA) celebrated the completion and certification
of the first 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) at a redelivery ceremony held
in Singapore today.

Press Release Body: Boeing launched the 767-300BCF PASSENGER-TO-FREIGHTER CONVERSION
(PTF) programme in 2005 with three firm orders and four options from ANA. Since
then, ANA has exercised all the options, and now has ordered seven PTF conversions
in all.

"We are delighted to take delivery of the first 767-300BCF. It will be a key
aircraft in the expansion of our cargo operation and express delivery services to
countries neighbouring Japan. The 767 has long been the work-horse of the ANA
passenger fleet; it is very gratifying to see an old friend work beyond retirement,
and in doing so contribute to the environment in terms of saving and reusing
resources. We thank Boeing for their design and SASCO for their work in carrying
out the conversion.\" Shinsuke MAKI, Senior Vice President, Engineering &
Maintenance, ANA

\"Boeing employees and ST Aerospace worked as true partners to complete this
well-designed and expertly managed conversion. We do everything possible to help
customers increase the environmental and operational efficiencies throughout the
entire lifespan of their airplanes.\"
