All white liveried B757.

Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:41 pm

An all white B757 landed at Port Moresby (AYPY), Papua New Guinea, Thursday 06/06/19, 1800 local time. Internet indicates this aircraft has something to do with US government. No photo yet so unsure of tail number.

Yes these are the men in white 757s. I think they are based in update New York/ Very clandestine type of operations. Not sure but I seem to recall they were cewed by either USAF Reserves or the Air National Guard, Probably a convent cover of sorts. I think you can find a fews pictures here on A Net of these aircraft. I think most of them are 757-023's?

Could be the Comco aircraft. Mysterious aircraft associated with the government. Also there are the little known all white C-32B operated by the Air Force, not to be confused with the blue and white C-32A VIP planes.

White, military reg, US Air force titles on the side?

We've had 99-6143 here a few weeks ago, was quite surprised to see a 757 next to all the tiny private jets.

99-6143 is one of the C-32Bs. Their missions are as mysterious as the Comco aircraft. It is possible that these are the same aircraft, production list for the 757 doesn't show any for Comco or military C-32B. The C-32B has only become known recently, could be the former Comco aircraft. Either way they were probably built as airline aircraft. Previous post said -223 which would be American. Both the Comco and C-32B are RR powered. The C-32A VIP birds are PW powered.

I misspoke as the designation is a 727-23A, not an -023. And yes the Airforce all white 757's I was referring to are in fact RR powered.

Looks like one of them was originally ordered by Ansett Worldwide and the other by Avianca.

The -23A was a lease company spec so you found them with numerous operators world wide. I use to fly one that never was in airline operations although it had been destined for one or more before Boeing sold it to Freeport MacMoran, a world wide mining company. Like you say, Ansett was the original customer with the -23A label.

Not really a recent dscovery, the C-32Bs have been known about for over a decade. There was even an AAR photo published of one being refuelled in 2010...
