SCOOP: Boeing 757NG launch imminent with Delta and Icelandair

Thu Apr 01, 2021 4:11 pm

Big Report from The Air Current says Boeing will indeed compete in the MOM. Due to the success of the A321neo and its long range variants, Boeing felt very pressured to have some sort of competition in this market with some 757 customers purchasing XLRs and the threat of more switches. Delta and Icelandair are reportedly the launch customers for this aircraft. Aircraft will be modified to incorporate some of the work put into the NMA concept, the big headline news is the aircraft will feature RR's Ultrafan and a upgraded version of the PW1000G engine, both featuring a fan diameter of 90". The aircraft will also be a slight stretch of the 757-200 placing it right between the -200 and -300 in length. Some specifications will be listed below. An interesting part about this is that the tooling for the 757 magically appeared inside of the former 787 production line in Everett so production is able to start right away.

Image

Aircraft: 757-8
Width: 148 in / 3.76 m fuselage
Length: 168ft/51.2m
Height: 45ft
someone had to do it
Wingspan: 135ft
MTOW: 265,000lb/120,000kg
Range: 5000nmi/9200km
Engines: Rolls-Royce Trent 2000 or new Pratt and Whitney 1000G variant

Too bad it’s a joke. That’s a rather incredibly sexy looking bird that should be reality.

I would much rather have a new 757 than the 737MAX, it's a shame Boeing decided to stop production!

Something fishy about this post...

Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings

The news that we were all waiting for about 5-10 years ago. Back then it would have been an important project for Boeing and today it's just a joke

Indeed. How dare they not spend billions on something that customers made exceedingly clear that they didn't want. Shame on them.

Exactly. It’s something i don’t understand when people say they should’ve kept the 757. Like it was not wanted

I simply like the aircraft is all, I can dream, carry on. It's not worth it trying to debate with the other guy so I'll respond to you.

Wow it's been a long time since I've had my hopes dashed by an April fools joke. I guess I just want to be able to see the 757 well into the future.

I have always enjoyed flying in a 757, once transatlantic AMS-EWR. Is it because it was a single aisle that it was dropped, or what?

Yes, the Mirage Creation Automated System is required to make the 757NG visible.
