The Boeing 757 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the manufacturer's largest narrow-body twinjet and features two turbofan engines, a supercritical wing design, and a conventional tail. Designed to replace the 727 on short and medium airline routes, the 757 has a capacity of 186 to 289 persons and a maximum range of 3,100 to 4,100 nautical miles (5,700 to 7,600 km), depending on variant. Development of the 757 occurred in tandem with the 767, a wide-body twinjet with which it shares design features and two-crew glass cockpits. The operating similarities between the 757 and the 767 allow pilots to obtain a common type rating to operate both aircraft.The 757 was produced in two fuselage lengths. The original 757-200 entered service in 1983, while the stretched 757-300, the longest narrow-body twinjet ever produced, entered service in 1999. A production freighter version, the 757-200PF, was offered along with a combi model, the 757-200M. Passenger models have also been converted to the 757-200SF cargo specification. The C-32, a military transport variant, was produced for the United States Air Force. All 757 models feature Rolls-Royce RB211 or Pratt & Whitney PW2000 series turbofans.Eastern Air Lines and British Airways first placed the 757 in commercial service in 1983. Following its introduction, the 757 became commonly used by operators for domestic and transcontinental flights, and particularly with U.S. mainline carriers, European charter airlines, and Chinese domestic operators. The aircraft has also been purchased by several countries and private entities for use as government, military, and VIP transport.Production of the 757 ended on October 28, 2004, after 1,050 had been built. The final aircraft was delivered to Shanghai Airlines on November 28, 2005. The 757-200 is the most common variant, accounting for the majority of all 757s ordered. As of 2010, Delta Air Lines operates the largest 757 fleet, and 945 examples are in airline service worldwide.
