Yes sounds like someone is getting type rated on the 757. They might have hired a new commercial licensed pilot but isn't type rated for the 757 yet. They usually do several touch and goes (forgot if there is a magic number or not) to get the rating. That Buffalo Airways TV show, Bruce Dickenson singer of Iron Maiden gets himself type rated on a DC-4.

This is the group that is working on the autonomous car and the Google Glasses, which is basically like a HMD but on glasses. Maybe they've turned their attention to something aviation related...
