That is what I thought...Boeing agreed to give us a REALLY good deal in exchange for a 757 they could use to do the testing. It amazes me what a great relationship CO has with Boeing. We have gotten some pretty sweet deals from our exclusive relationship with them. Also, since they still have our airplane, if anyone has any ideas or heard anything about the delivery of the 75W...let us know. I remember when I saw the first 738 outfitted with winglets at EWR...it was an awesome sight..and still is!

The winglet equipped 757-200 (ship 134) is in Tucson for testing. That testing should be very nearly complete. Once it is complete, the winglets will be removed, and ship 134 will return to service without the winglets. Once the certification is completed (paperwork), CO will begin equipping some 757s with winglets (May). As many as 6 may be complete at the end of June.
