Great idea for a thread, guys. I'm always tracking flights in & out of PAE, BFI & RNT. So exactly which flights are game? Delivery flights after acceptance from Boeing? Boeing test flights? Maintenance flights to BFI or PAE? All of these?

During the last days MX retired two Boeing 757-200s, N755MX and N764MX. There are sitting at MX hangars in Mexico City all white and soon both aircrafts will be returned to lessor or ferried to a dessert. Does anybody knows who's the owner of this two birds? ILFC?

I shoot at BFI frequently, so I should be able to provide some data. I shot a Ryanair @ BFI Tuesday, but I can't get to the photos right now. Will fill in later if you still need it.
Currently at BFI undergoing test flights:
Royal Air Maroc 738 w/o winglets
Futura Internation 738 w/ winglets
Sun Country 738 w/o winglets
Ryanair 738 w/o winglets
Southwest 737 w/ winglets
Plus a few more.
The last two are pretty much always there, if not 2 or even 3 airframes of each.

Quoting RobK (reply 17): Currently showing is 'BOE554' B752 leaving 0943 local to Grant County and due back again an hour later - thought the 757 production line had closed now, so I'm wondering what this could be ?
There are actually two new Shanghai 757's at BFI right now. They were the last two to roll of the 757 line last year, but are not scheduled for delivery until later this month I believe. The fact that they are now flying them again makes me assume delivery is coming up.
One or more of us BFI photogs will definately get the last 757 leaving BFI.

>>>Any ideas? Weird.
Since it's (1) originating and returning to the same airport, is (2) only getting up to FL230, and (3) has a total time of about 73 minutes in the air, I'm going to guess that it's a test hop after MX of some kind... Either that or a demo flight of some kind...
Those opinions and 50 cents will get you a cup of coffee...
