I remember when the 757 was first done....right around when the first 777 was delivered. My Dad worked at AFW
at that time and took delivery of the retro 757 (5EL-N679AA). My dad flew to Seatle to pick the plane up and do the test flights an such then flew with the crew to AFW
, the plane was deliverd with no paint on it. I believe they did the decales in Bay 5 at AFW
. Dont really remember but i did fly on the plane from AFW
for its first revenue flight.......what an AWSOME experiance feeling a 757 TO
with no pax on board. I got a picture of the airplane not to long ago at ORD
(when i was working their) with the regular livery. I have a picture on my wall in this room with my dad and his crew chief standing in front of the plane once it was all done......VERY gorgeous airplane. It will be missed very much. However the 737 is VERY gorgeous as well.
