Recommended Posts

From our online Boeing News this morning....

Last 757-300 leaves the factoryThe last 757-300 rolled out of the Renton, Wash., factory Sunday night. Following first flight, the airplane will be painted and delivered to Continental Airlines next month. The decision to phase out the jet was announced last year when it became clear that the capabilities of the 737 and 7E7 would fulfill the market requirement for an airplane with the size and range of the 757. The longest single-aisle twinjet ever produced, the 757-300 is 178 feet, 7 inches in length, 15 percent longer than the 757-200. Seven customers around the world have ordered 55 757-300s since its launch in 1996. The very last 757, a 757-200, will be built in October when Boeing completes production of this popular jetliner.
