I will confirm Ifly2eat's remark. They were all Rolls-Royce powered. Did they go bankrupt, or were they bought out? Are their 757s in storage, or are they flying for other carriers?

A National Airlines Seven-Five? Weren't they gone long before the 757's were introduced?

I have seen pictures here of their 757s parked at VCV and MHV, waiting to be leased or bought. I'm not sure, however, whether this has happened yet or not.

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Spoon04,
There have been 3 National Airlines in the USA alone!

(1) The original National merged with Pan Am in the early 1980s.

I was going to say, I have seen NATIONAL 757's many times before and I'm not that old. Speaking of, how old is the 757? B/c I think I was born before it was introduced (1989). I would have guess that they were bankrupt seeing how their 757's are in the desert(not too sure about that)

The first National Airlines was the best. No other National Airlines in the U.S. could ever top the first...why did Pan Am have to buy them out, then die themselves? Why? Why? Why?!!  Crying

Crosswind, correct-you-are.... I was thinking of the original National Airlines. As a matter of fact, I'm wondering.... were they absorbed by Pan Am?

PanAm had no siginficant domestic network after dereg, and saw buying National as the fastest [but as history showed, not the wisest] way to get one.

Transmeridian picked up one or two of the ex-National 757's, if I recall. Others are still sitting in the sand.

"Speaking of, how old is the 757?"

I remember back in '84 flying one of Eastern's new 757. I think they were introduced just shortly before that.

Edit: First flight was on February 19 1982 and the 757 entered service in January the following year.

I heard that TZ was going to pick up a couple or three of the National 757-200s that are parked in the desert somewhere. That was a couple months ago though.

Yes, ATA did take delivery of some of the ex-National 757s.

I used to live in LAS, so I have a fond affection for the old "Red Rockers."

North American Airlines has at least one of National's old 757s. The interior still has their logos on the bulkheads. If I recall correctly, the captain told me that the aircraft has the higher gross weight mod. They may have been with Eastern before that??? The aircraft was used as the press plane for a recent visit by George W. It carried the press corps.
