Information about Boeing 757
The Boeing 757 is a mid-range narrow-body aircraft built by the American company Boeing. The liner was designed to replace the outdated Boeing 727, and eventually became one of the most successful projects of the company. Between 1983 and 2004, 1,050 aircraft were launched.
When creating the Model 757, the main focus was on the aircraft fuel efficiency. Compared with the Boeing 727, the new liner consumed 20% less fuel. Of course, the oil crisis of 1973 played its role in this, after which the airlines urgently needed to update their fleet with new, more profitable aircraft.
In the end, the Model 757 was refined and lost any resemblance to its predecessor, the 727. An interesting fact is that at the same time, Boeing was developing the high-tech (at that time) model 767. It was from her that the Boeing 757 took over new technology. Moreover, the cabins of both airliners were unified, which made it possible to train the crew in two types at once, and this, in turn, reduced airlines’ expenses on crew retraining.
The similarity of the cabs 757 and 767 was that for the first time in history, part of the analog electromechanical dial gauges were replaced with cathode ray tube displays. The crew was reduced to 2 people, and the Flight Management System (FMS) coped with the functions of the navigator, which, in addition, had a lot of opportunities. Since then, cabs with similar equipment are called “glass” or “glass cockpit”.
In 1979, Boeing finally abandoned the T-shaped tail fin in favor of the traditional one. The front of the fuselage was redesigned to reduce drag. Moreover, the fuselage itself was extended, and its capacity increased to 239 passengers. Unlike the Boeing 727, the design of the wing became longer, thereby increasing the capacity of the fuel tanks, as well as the overall aerodynamics of the aircraft.
Production and Testing
Production of the Model 757 was planned at one of the Boeing plants, located in the city of Renton (Renton), Washington. An interesting fact is that of all the parts, Boeing decided to produce only half, including: the wing, tail and the nose of the fuselage. The remaining components were to be made by subcontractors. In particular, the slats were supplied by Fairchild, the flaps were supplied by Grumman, and Rockwell International produced the main parts of the fuselage. The first build of the Boeing 757 began in January 1981.
In the early 2000s, due to low demand, the production program of the Boeing 757 was not promising. Trying to reduce the risk of flight payback, the airline once again began to fly to small aircraft, such as the Boeing 737 or Airbus 320. In March 2001, Boeing converted the first passenger 757-200 into a cargo one. The model received the name 757-200SF and was delivered to the transport company DHL.
To be clear, usually on the re-arrangement of the passenger in the cargo, do planes, usually not profitable for passenger traffic. The reasons may be any, and often not in favor of the aircraft.
In October 2003, the company Boeing officially announced the cessation of production of the family 757. The last, 1050 aircraft in modification 757-200 was delivered to Shanghai Airlines on November 28, 2005.
In May 2005, Boeing offered 757 airline owners to purchase the option in the form of wingtips (winglets), which increase the aircraft’s fuel efficiency by 5% and increase the range by 370 km by reducing wing resistance. The first buyer of the option was Continental Airlines.
As for the replacement, the 757 was replaced by Boeing model 737-900ER. Of the competitors, the most similar in characteristics is the Airbus A321.
In 2012, Boeing announced that the new 737MAX family will cover the 200-seat segment of the 757 model.
