757:Thanks For The Memories And Here's The 1050th

Sun May 01, 2005 10:13 am

There you go guys, the last new one (1050th) that will leave BFI on a delivery flight.
Thanks for all these great years Boeing and 757!

Wow, pretty remarkable – 23 year production run and still over 1,030 operating out of 1,050!

How about everyone adds a picture of the B757s operating in their country, like one picture from every airline. Here is the RNZAFs B752

That is because it is not only one of the most economical and durable planes ever built, but also one of the safest.

The B757 is probably my favourite type. It looks cool and takes off like a rocket. What else do you want?

Here's my favouriate livery, which I've had the pleasure to see at BOS, where I live now, and at GLA, where I used to live.

Truly a remarkable aircraft. My first flight ever was on a BA 757 from VIE to LHR in the summer of 1997. Here's a picture for my country:

The 757 is an amazing aircraft I fly MIA-TGU and TGU-MIA often and Taking off from TGU in an AA 757 is really amazing. I hope I can someday fly one.

Some things about the BOEING 757:

The 757 has carried more than 1.3 billion passengers, more than four times the population of the United States and Canada combined.

In 18 years of operation, the 757 fleet has flown the equivalent of nearly 25,000 roundtrips between the Earth and the Moon.

The 757 fleet has produced over 24 million hours of service for its operators, equivalent to about 2,750 years of continuous service.

The 757 Freighter can hold over 6 million golf balls.

At 255,000 pounds (115,660 kilograms), the 757 weighs as much as a diesel train locomotive.

The surface area of a pair of 757 wings is 1,951 square feet (181 square meters), about the same as the floor space of a three-bedroom house in the U.S.

There are about 626,000 parts in a 757. About 600,000 bolts and rivets fasten those parts together. The length of all wires in the twinjet is about 60 miles (100 kilometers).

Airlines fly the versatile 757 on a wide variety of routes. The twinjet is used to serve city pairs as far as 4,281 statute miles (6,890 kilometers) and as close as 65 statute miles (105 kilometers).

The common 757/767 cockpit type-rating permits flight crews trained on the 757 to also fly the 767.

Of the company's (year-end 2000) unfilled announced orders for 1,612 commercial jets , 4.9 percent (79) are for 757 twinjets.

757's History (www.boeing.com)

The first 757-200 rolled out of the Boeing Renton, Wash., plant Jan. 13, 1982, and made its first flight Feb. 19, 1982.

The U. S. Federal Aviation Administration certified the aircraft Dec. 21, 1982, after 1,380 hours of flight testing over a 10-month period.

First delivery of a 757-200 took place Dec. 22, 1982, to launch customer Eastern Airlines. Eastern placed the aircraft into service Jan. 1, 1983. On Jan. 14, 1983, the British Civil Aviation Authority certified the 757-200 to fly in the United Kingdom. British Airways, another launch customer for the 757-200, is now a major operator of the twinjet.

Final assembly of the 757-200, 757-300 and the 757 Freighter is done in the Renton plant. Parts and assemblies for the airplanes are provided by Boeing plants in Auburn and Spokane, Wash.; Portland, Ore.; and Wichita, Kan., as well as by nearly 700 external suppliers

757 is comin' home
Now you're really flying

Just out of curiosity (and in no way meant to demean the craft), but what are the circumstances of the 20 or so that are no longer in service?

I know there were a few accidents (DHL) not to mention 9-11, and I seem to recall a Britannia example written off...were any retired/scrapped? That would strike me as odd, considering the durability of the type.

I've been on 34 757's thus far (32 752's and 2 753's) over the years on both short (SAT-IAH) and long (LAX-PIT) flights, and every flight is/was enjoyable. You just can't beat those 757 takeoffs. There's just nothing else like them!

Here are my 757 airline/route combinations that i've been on:

American (BOS-DFW)
Continental (MSY-IAH, IAH-MSY, MIA-IAH, SAT-IAH)
Delta (MSY-ATL, ATL-MSY, MSY-SLC, SLC-MSY, ATL-BNA, BOS-ATL, ATL-BOS, BOS-CVG, PVD-ATL, SLC-LAS, LAS-SLC)
Northwest (MEM-MSP, DTW-MSP, MSP-DTW)
United (ORD-MSY, IAD-MCO, MCO-DEN, PVD-ORD, ORD-PVD)
US Airways (PHL-PVD,PIT-PVD,LAX-PIT)

Sorry we'll see no more new ones. I like its lines, and it leaps into the sky.

I used to fly them from (closed) Hong Kong's Kai Tak and (closed) Guangzhou's Baiyun.

RE: 757:Thanks For The Memories And Here's The 1050th

Sun May 01, 2005 7:47 pm

It's heartbreaking to see this beautiful plane's production line end. But, it had a great run. And hopefully will continue to fly for decades to come. The 757 was the cousin of the 727, arguably the most beautiful single-aisle jetliner that Boeing ever produced. It began as the 727-300 concept, which was eventually scrapped, but the concept of an airliner with that pax size and increased power and efficiency lead to the creation of the 757.

And, fortunately, the 757 carried with it the gene of good looks that the 727 had. While the plane bore little resemblance to the 727, it still ranks up there as one of Boeing's most sleek and eye-pleasing designs.


I grew up loving both of these jetliners. I sure miss flying on 727s, but at least I still have the 757 to look forward to flying on again in the future. Those big, wonderful sounding engines, beautiful wings, raw power and sleek lines will adorn our skies for years to come. A sadder day than this will come when the first 757 is broken apart in the desert. And the saddest of all will be the day that the last major airline retires them from their fleets. Hopefully, not for years to come.


The 787 is what we have to look forward to now. Our small consolation in the shutdown of the 757 and (soon) 767 lines.

Since there are no B757s registered in the country of my citizenship, I'll post one for the country I live in (which was taken on the island that the people of this country just love travelling to)...

... and while I'd not go out of my way to fly on one, my flights on B757s have always been quite enjoyable.

But it is sad to see the line closed...

were any retired/scrapped

Line #36 was scrapped at Opa Locka, FL in October of last year. IIRC, at least two or three other 752s of similar vintage are about to meet or have already met the same fate.

From the press release in the opening post:

Continuing the 757's legacy of innovation, the airplane delivered yesterday is the first 757 certified and delivered as a Chapter 4 airplane, meaning it meets noise limits scheduled to go into effect Jan. 1, 2006.

Is this just a minor certification change, or are 757s otherwise not compliant with Chapter 4?

Too bad this was probably estimated and not actually done in real life!  Smile That would be amusing.

Really! This one was a real shocker.

As for my history with the 757, I have flown on them 29 times. My first one was with NW between LAX-MSP back in 1989, and my most recent one was about 1.5 months ago on NW from DTW-MSP. #30 will come in a few weeks between DEN and LAX. That will also be my 299th flight of all time...the 744 getting the honors of #300. UA has one overnighting in DSM on their schedule now that comes in from ORD and leaves in the morning for DEN.

Routes that I have flown the 757 on:
DSM-ORD: 2
DSM-DEN: 2
ANC-ORD: 1
ORD-BWI: 2
ORD-MEX: 2
ORD-SFO: 1
DEN-MCI: 1
DEN-SFO: 5
DEN-LAX: 1
DEN-SAN: 4
SFO-SNA: 1
LAX-MSP: 2
SAN-MSP: 1
BOS-MSP: 1
DTW-MSP: 1
DTW-BOS: 1
BOS-ATL: 1


All in all, a beutiful bird and a pleasure to fly!

What happened to the 20 planes that are no longer in service? Where they involved in accidents? 1030 out of 1050 is an impressive number. What a remarkable machine.

I used to think the 757 was ugly, the way it sits up high and the funny looking nose.

But now, I think it is absolutely beautiful! It had to grow on me I guess. I especially like it in the new NW livery, the old and new DL livery, and AM also.

there are eight 757s crashed or damaged beyond repair, one scrapped and about 28 are stored on this moment. Most of these are just "in between operators," like a few which were returned by Air 2000, the three of Dutchbird after they went bankrupt, Northwest have parked a few temporarily etc. If necessairy, I think apart from about 2 or 3 they will eventually all fly again.

I have worked on nearly every airliner type, but my fondest memory is of the 757. The acceleration and climb are stunning. You had to experience a LHR-MAN takeoff to believe it. A beautiful aeroplane. I remember going on a Monarch 757, G-MONC, to Malta when it was only a few months old. It seemed so sophisticated compared to the 737-200's that were the staple charter fleet in those days. Maybe we should not be so sad, there are years left in these lovely old birds yet.
The customer is always right.....unless he is a passenger!

I've also had the opportunity (and the joy) to fly on a 757 on two occasions:

American 757 DEN-DFW June 2000
TWA 757 STL-MCO June 2001

I love its slim looks and its unique front end, as well as its interior.

What an airplane. My most favorite of all time, the narrow nose just starting at you. We'll miss you 757, you've been a great plane.  Sad

Its just a gorgeous plane and i love the nose... i dont know anyone who doesnt love that plane... I am really suprised that there are over 1000 of them and almost all of them still in service.... there is no better argument for quality is there?
There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

757 operators in BOG: Keep on sending those planes! (though CO will downgrade EWR-BOG to a 737)

Quoting NorCal (Reply 26):
What happened to the 20 planes that are no longer in service? Where they involved in accidents?

All the accidents were caused by faulty MX, pilot error or terrorism. None due to failure of aircraft systems. Only one aircraft was B/U

Quoting NorCal (Reply 26):
1030 out of 1050 is an impressive number.

It is actually 1042 out of 150, as the stored ones are going back into service.

Quoting NorCal (Reply 26):
What a remarkable machine.

The 757 is an amazing aircraft, I hope to see them in the skies for a while yet, I love them, take off's are brilliant, so much power, the engine noise is fantastic, I always love going on them just to hear the noise, when the power is cut back.

My last two 757 aircraft, will not be my last, I'm sure of that!

G-OOBH and G-OOBD of First Choice Airways, fantastic livery on the 757.

My first flight on a 757 was on a US PHL-BOS flight back in the summer of 1995. The return BOS-PHL flight, I believe was also a 757.

That's it in terms of my 757 experiences.

In terms of livery, I think TZ's latest livery looks great on these birds.

I'm assuming that 1050 production number includes the 753s.

Since I'm a big UA person most of my 757 flights have been on UA (a couple of oddball routes in there like ORD-COS) but mostly just the sort of hub-hub and hub-spoke routes that make the 757 such a workhorse:

BOS-DEN

BWI-DEN

DEN-BWI, DEN-IAD, DEN-LAX, DEN-LGA, DEN-MIA, DEN-ORD, DEN-PDX
DEN-SEA, DEN-SFO

EWR-SFO

IAD-DEN, IAD-ORD

LAS-ORD

LAX-DEN, LAX-SFO

LGA-DEN

ORD-COS, ORD-DEN, ORD-IAD, ORD-SAN

SEA-DEN, SEA-LAX

SFO-DEN, SFO-HNL, SFO-LAX

China Southern:

KWL-CAN

Delta:

BWI-ATL

DFW-DEN

Northwest:

DTW-YYZ

British Airways:

VCE-LHR

USAirways:

FLL-CLT, CLT-PHL

Love the 757 - always safe and comfortable. Long may she fly!

Agree with JeffSFO, the TWA livery was the BEST looking livery on the 75, especially at my home airport!
