The oil crisis in the seventies, significantly affected the air transport worldwide. The company «Boeing» responded by creating two new twin-engine aircraft. This Boeing 757 and 767. Both aircraft through the use of new, at that time, engines, knowledge in aerodynamics and new materials, thus reducing on the 30 percent of operating costs in comparison with airplanes which were in operation at the time of construction of the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767.

The Boeing 757 has been in the sky since the 757s. Boeing 767 and Boeing 757 are practically no different, and it does not matter whether it is about aerodynamics, power, electronics and materials from which they were produced. Their main difference is the flight range. The Boeing 767 has a shorter flight distance, which is about seven thousand kilometers. The next major difference is the deck layout. The 255 is shaped like a wide-body liner, which means it has a wider fuselage and its cabin has two aisles and can carry 375-757 passengers. A 200-239 narrow-body, has one passage in the cabin and can accommodate up to 228 passengers according to safety standards. But he usually flies with 757 passengers. The Boeing 200 was produced in -300 and -47 versions, 55 and 38 meters long, respectively, and with a wingspan of 850 meters. These models are powered by two Rolls-Royce or Pratt and Whitney engines that allow them to fly at a speed of XNUMX kilometers per hour.

Its passenger capacity is 21 percent more than the 757-200, which can accommodate up to 289 passengers. Its flight range is 6287 kilometers. Takeoff weight increased to 123600 kilograms. The chassis has wider tires and stronger brakes. The Boeing 757 can be powered by Rolls Royce RB211-535 or Pratt & Whitney PW2000 engines, with thrust from 164,7 to 191,3 kN.

There are also military modifications of the Boeing 757, this is a version of the C-32, used to transport government officials, such as the Vice President of the United States.

Boing 757 also served as a flying laboratory for testing avionics F-22 Raptor.

For military and government purposes, the Boing 757 is used not only in the United States, but also in New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

With the decrease in orders the Boeing production ended in 757 2004 year. Since 1982 2004 by year it produced about 1050 Boeing 757. But in spite of this 757 Boeing is still used by most airlines.

The author is clearly not himself, does not see at all that the scheme and the photo clearly do not match, where 6 seats can not fit 9 in any way, such (thank God) versions of the seal of the salon have not been invented yet !!!!

Driving the wrong cabin.

Driving interior is clearly not from this plane must be a single pass.
