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 757 boeing has been in the sky since the eighties. Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 are almost the same, and it doesn’t matter whether they are aerodynamic, power, electronics or the materials from which they were made. Their main difference is the range. The Boeing 757 has a shorter flight distance, which is about seven thousand kilometers. The next major difference is the deck layout. The 767 has the shape of a wide-body liner, which means it has a wider fuselage and its cabin has two aisles and can carry 255-375 passengers. And the 757-200 is narrow-body, has one pass in the cabin and can accommodate up to 239 passengers according to safety standards. But he usually flies with 228 passengers. Boeing 757 was produced in versions -200 and -300, in length 47 and 55 meters, respectively, and with a wingspan of 38 meters. These models are equipped with two engines of RollsRoyce or Pratt and Whitney, which allow them to fly with a speed of 850 kilometers per hour.

The 757-300 version is derived from the 757-200 version. Due to the lengthening of the fuselage, it was possible to increase the number of passenger seats. Its passenger capacity is more on the 21 percentage than the 757-200, which can accommodate up to 289 passengers. Its flight range is 6287 kilometers. Take-off weight increased to 123600 kilogram. The chassis has wider tires and powerful brakes. On Boeing 757, Rolls Royce RB211-535 or Pratt & Whitney PW2000 engines can be used, with thrust from 164,7 to 191,3 kN.

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 !!!!
