I can't think of any newer civil aircraft used by U.S.airlines that require a FE station. The early 747's,DC-10,DC-8's,707's and 727's are all that come to mind.
I think the U.S.A.F.is even eliminating the position or combining it with the loadmasters - not sure.
Trivia question - did the early model 737's carry a Flight Engineer?
Trivia question - do any 737's require a Flight Engineer?
