History of the Boeing 757:
The B757 is an American twin-engine short to medium range commercial passenger aircraft manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The 757 was the first Boeing airliner launched with engines produced outside the U.S., with early customers selecting the Rolls-Royce RB211. More than 1,030 of the 757s are still in service. The B757-200 variant of the B757, first flew on February 19 1982, can carry 228 passengers in a single class. The -200 version, a member of the popular 757/767 family of medium-sized airplanes, is a twin-engine short-to-medium-range jetliner incorporating advanced technology for exceptional fuel efficiency, low noise levels, increased passenger comfort and top operating performance. The 757-200 is the definitive version and forms the majority of the 757. The 757-200 version is shorter and has a longer operating range than the 757-300. The -200 was available in two different door configurations. One version used three standard doors per side with an additional, smaller door aft of the wing on each side for emergency evacuations. All eight door locations are equipped with inflatable evacuation slides. The alternate version is equipped with three standard doors per side (two towards the front and one at the aft of the cabin) with two "plug-type" overwing exits per side replacing the smaller door aft of the wing. Presidential challenger John Kerry used a chartered 757-200, nicknamed "Freedom Bird" during the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign. The -200 model has also been manufactured in freighter (757-200F) and passenger-freight combi (757-200M) versions. In the late 1990's, some of the airliners 757-200s were converted to freighters.
