B-757-200 Weight Question

Sat May 31, 2003 11:42 pm

Does anyone out there know, or know where I can find, the weight of a RR-powered B-757-200 aircraft without the passenger interiors? Or, does anyone know an average figure for a standard, two-class B-757-200 interior and I can take that figure off the BEW (126K Pounds) to get the totally empty weight. Thanks.

I wonder if those figures even exist MxCtrl.

Typically airframes aren't weighed out of the factory green before the interior kit is fitted.

Best bet would be find out if Boeing ever ferried one green to Witchita or something and then see if you can find a source for the weight data that they used.

That's what I was afraid of, L-188. Maybe someone knows an approximate figure for a standard two-class B-757-200 interior (similar to National's or America West's interior) and I can deduct that figure from the 126K BEW I already have to get an approximate "new" BEW.

Dear MxCtrl -
Don't ask me where I got the approximate numbers, but for a 757-200 without seats and galleys I would deduct nearly 20,000 lbs from the BOW... Should you want to ask me why I throw this number, it is not a wild guess, but would take me 200 lines here to explain why I come to that number...

Use that number as an educated "approximate" weight...  Big grin

Dont know what the fully empty weight of a B757-200 is, however the basic operating weight with the cabin and galley furnishings is approx 133,000lbs.

757-200F weighs 51,136Kg dry weight or 112,734 lbs. If anybody knows what the floors on the freighters weigh. We'll be very close to the weight your looking floor.

A typical "minimum operating weight" for an RB211 equipped B752 is 52,435 kg. or 115,598 lbs.

So take out everything you are allowed to take out and that becomes your answer!
