I have seen that, shows what a fantastic aircraft the B757 really is. Only 20 days (including today) till I'm back on one! :D

WTF is that!! A B757 or a jet fighter on full afterburner!? WOW, wouldn't mind taking the jump seat for that display. Looks like the NZ AF?

Awesome. Just awesome. I've always been a fan of the 757, and that video in a way reminded me why. Apart from 'that 757 sound', she's one of the sleekest, sexiest aircraft in the skies...In my opinion of course! Paul

Well......can't really say I've ever seen anything as impressive as that before :eek:! That must take some piloting and some impressive aircraft capabilities to pull that off!

That must take some piloting...
Push the "go" levers forward and pull back on the stick. :) I'm wondering how many negative g's they had during the recovery.

Thats a fighter with a 757 costume.... lol. There is somewhere a brilliant quote from the US Navy. They had been evaluating the 757 as a land based patrol plane and some admiral or such is quoted as saying something along the lines of: "Nevermind patrolling, the 757 could be a creditable dogfighter" I laughed hard when I read it. Unfortunately... I can't seem to find it, despite intensive googling.

Thats brilliant by the RNZAF. the 757 has to be boeing's best aircraft every (apart from the B-17 :D ) Here is another one by RNZAF at RAF Fairford http://flightlevel350.com/viewer.php?id=5075 Fokker Fan James

Ah it's Air Scotland attempting to improve it's time keeping performance. The optional passenger pick up scoop will be deployed in time for this summer schedule... :D

PMN - The 757 sound is a result of the RB211-535E4 motors they use. They are a 3 spool engine whereas most turbofans these days are 2 spoolers. The 744 use the same units but the sound is somewhat different as there are 4 of them but you can still pick out that underlying tone. WD - Doubt any negative G. The 75 is not certified for any negative G. Probably recovered from it with some sort of wing over/chandelle manoeuver otherwise it would be plenty of negative G.

can anyone tell me why boeing would cancel production of that airplane. I don't understand their thought process.

I have heard a similar sound on the 744, but like you say, it isn't quite the same. Thanks for the explanation! Paul
