Question About The 757

Tue Nov 02, 2004 2:08 pm

Guys,
I always thought that early 757's were the ones with the exit door behind the wings, as I also thought that the newer 757'2 had the window exits over the wings. But I just saw the picture of the last built 757 and it has the exit door behind the wing.
Can some of you share your knowledge in this field, on what's was the deal about the doors ?

Thanks,

I will miss the 757, what a beautiful machine.

AFAIK The exit door configuration of the 757 is determined by the customer.

As Dl757Md said, the configuration is determined by the customer.

Same goes with the B763:

As you can see, HA has 3 B763s in different configurations (bought from another owner).
