You'd have to click on each original registration to see the history of each plane. Many have had several operators.

Quoting TS-IOR (Reply 4):
XC-UJM

So that's MSN 22690, and the airfleets.com list ends with 22689. Perhaps EA cancelled some orders and 22690 was picked up by the Mexican govt.?

I don´t now. It arrived in 1986, 1987. Spent time in Dallas being VIP retrofitted. Maybe aircraft for heads of state are not listed publicly?

If you search XC-UJM in the photo database, it gives the MSN #. That's how I backed into it. The Boeing orders page might also have some info. It's like how UA had 744s with -451 as the customer code. They took over planes initially ordered by NW.

Great to know, thanks. I always thought it was a hand down from EA. In a year and a half it will be gone and a new 787-8 will fill its place.

EA had two 757s ordered that they didn't take up...

22690.....delivered 11/16/87 to Mexican president
22691.....delivered 12/10/87 to America West

22689 was taken up by EA but leased to LTE Intl Airways 02/90

All of the US Airways 757s from EA should be gone

The best compilation and updated source of all kinds of information related solely to the Boeing 757 is Marcel van Noordenne´s website at the following link. Here you can find all kinds of information in well organized database of the venerable B757.

I believe the correct answer is 7, but only 4 would be in regular use (1 at FedEx, 3 at DHL) since all the others are private owners and not airlines.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

So, the Mexican Air Force will take delivery of a 787-8 for Presidential travel?

I thought they bought the B-787-8 test aircraft ZA-006. Is that not correct?

No. There were a few issues with that. I´m not sure wether it was financing or some other. So they piggy backed on the AM order and will be getting a new one.

Honeywell has ln #5, N757HW. Used as an engine test bed for business jet engines (HTF series mostly).
