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)

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.
