Boeing 757 "is" in the sky since the eighties. Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 are practically the same, and it does not matter whether they are aerodynamics, power, electronics and materials from which they were produced. Their main difference is the range of flight. Boeing 757 has a smaller flight distance, which is approximately seven thousand kilometers. The next major difference is the layout of the deck. 767 has the form of a wide body, which means that it has a wider fuselage and its interior has two passes and can carry 255-375 passengers. And 757-200 is narrow-bodied, has one pass in the cabin and can accommodate according to safety standards up to 239 passengers. But usually he flies with 228 passengers. Boeing 757 was produced in versions -200 and -300, in length 47 and 55 meters respectively and with a span of the wing of 38 meters. These models are equipped with two engines from RollsRoyce or Pratt and Whitney, which allow them to fly at a speed of 850 kilometers per hour.
