Concise visual history of the Boeing 757 passenger jet. First flown in 1982, the Boeing 757 was an impressive accomplishment. The aircraft was fast, quiet, and fuel efficient while still exhibiting stellar takeoff, climb, and landing performance. Hear firsthand accounts from the leaders of the 757 program who skillfully established an extraordinary culture within their organisation. This team, empowered by the programs expert guidance, overcame the challenges of producing a new aircraft type in an environment that was fast paced and unforgiving. It was originally designed as a domestic aircraft, and the 757s performance, along with the advent of twin-engine overwater authorisations, led it to become one of the primary aircraft conducting long-range overwater operations. To place the reader in the pilots seat, a technical chapter is also included, describing the airplanes systems and actual handling of the airplane. Learn about this special aircraft and the people who designed, built, marketed, and flew it.
