Boeing Defense & Space Group, eh? I'd guess it's going to the Northrop Grumman plant next to the airport.

I've never seen that aircraft before, thanks for the info. Does Boeing have any other aircraft with equipment like that installed?

Hey JetBlast, did you get to see it? Normally I would've gone, but I'm in Daytona.

Yes she is here in all her glory with the test equipment on and everything else you can think of.The Northrop ramp was filled up with the 737, 2 Bac's, and the corporate citation so they parked her at the midfield cargo complex (Mathison Way).You can get a good look from the roadway.She's been gone from here for about 3 years since they did the initial mod so come on down.

Just an FYI.. that 752 is the first 757 ever produced and is the flying testbed for various components for the F/A-22 fighter. (Control surfaces and the like..)

I'm not so sure. The prototype 757 had Rolls Royce engines and the one in the picture has engines from Pratt & Whitney. Can anyone else verify?

That's correct! it was changed over from Rolls Royce to Pratt & Whitney's awhile ago.Not sure why but when it first came to BWI the pilots and Mx personell were all talking about it,and all the changes to the plumbing and pylons and etc.
