757s Delivered With RR -535C

Tue May 10, 2011 9:49 pm

This is probably a long shot, but does anybody have a link to (or knowledge of) a list of 757s that were originally delivered with Rolls -535C engines? I know that Eastern, British Airways, Monarch (others?) took initial deliveries with that engine but have never been able to find a serialized list.

The official Boeing production list only says RR or PW.

Why I want this information is altogether a different question and I'm not quite sure myself LOL.

Well can't give you a list, but BA took a lot.
G-BIKA to IKZ and MRA to MRJ.
In fact towards the end of these deliveries, BA was buying used C engines from Eastern, as Eastern were
re engining their B757 with E engines, and fitting them to new B757s at the factory. BA did not see the need to reengine as the average stage length was short, and oil ws cheap!, even though the E had 10pc lower fuel consumption than the C.

BA finally went for the E engine with PEA which was originally bought for charter subsidiary Caledonian, and needed ETOPS approval. All subsequent BA deliveries were E engines, because there were no more C engines left!

True We have a couple of B752SFs powered by RB211-535Cs.The rest are all B752PCFs powered by RB211-535E4s.
The former were Ex BA craft that DHL purchased & Freighter converted.

Thanks gents, good info!

Another interesting data point would be which ones were delivered with overwing exits or not. Maybe when I retire I'll put together a complete database LOL.

Have a good one!

From memory (and checking the photo DB) so open to correction;

British Airways
G-BIK_ and G-BMR_ series delivered with 535C engines (and retained)

Eastern Airlines
N501EA to N515EA definitely delivered with 535C engines (but all later re-engined with E4 engines)
Earliest photo I can find of N516EA had E4 engines... but given the delivery date likely delivered with 535C and re-engined by the time of shot being taken. Possible N517EA (or maybe even a later aircraft) was Eastern's first delivered with E4 engines.

Monarch Airlines
G-MONB-D delivered with 535C engines (but all later re-engined with E4 engines)
G-MONE and after delivered with 535E4 engines

Air Europe
G-BKRM, G-BPGW, G-BLVH delivered with 535C engines (and retained)
Later Air Europe deliveries had 535E4 engines

LTS
G-AMUR-T delivered with 535C engines (and retained)

Don't recall any other 535C powered 757s other than the prototype, which was later re-engined with PW engines (which it retained) once the 535C engines were certified...

Tim, what's JP? Janes?

I think my local library has a copy, perhaps my answers are in there?

JP Airline Fleets, it's an airline fleet book that comes out once a year. It lists every commercial airplane in the world subdivided by country and then airline. Before the advent of the web and sites like airlinerlists, the only way to trace the history of the planes you flew on was to order the JP Airline Fleets guide, and they weren't cheap, they ran about 70 dollars a copy plus shipping and handling as they're printed in Europe. Still, it was fascinating to look through.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

Roger that - thanks!

You are correct about the wealth of info on the internet. I try to explain to "these kids" what life was like back when there were things you just couldn't know because it wasn't in any of the books in the local library. And I'm not even 40 yet LOL.

The Internet is a boon for those looking for Information in Aviation.I remember the times in the early days where there were limited books available.Now the data flow is Instant.

And those of us who can still critically evaluate the info we find are all the better.

Thanks MEL, and I envy that you get to work with 757Fs. I only get to 'work' with them on Flight Simulator X   Have a great day...

Internet has been a boon for Aviation.Forums have been a source of interaction & knowledge sharing too.
