Description: The Boeing 757 is a single-aisle, medium-sized, low operating costs, twin-engine airliner suitable for short- and medium-range routes. It also features high fuel efficiency, low noise level and increased passenger comfort. Rolls Royce's RB211-535 and Pratt & Whitney PW2000 are the two high-bypass-ratio turbofans currently available to power this aircraft.

The Boeing 757-200 is a short to medium range airliner capable of carrying from 200 to 228 passengers arranged in two-class or one-class configuration respectively. With full load, the 757-200 can travel at over 2,900 nautical miles (5,400 kilometers). Typically, the range is extended to 3,900 nm (7,200 kilometers).

The first Boeing 757-200 was delivered to Eastern airlines in 1983. Propulsion system options include RR's RB211-535C, RB211-535E4 and RB211-535E4B; and PW's PW2037 and PW2040. The Boeing 757-200M is a variant of -200 model ordered only by Royal Nepal in 1988.

In August 1996, the US Air Force selected the Boeing 757-200 jetliner to meet its special air mission requirements. Four C-32A, 757-200 US Air Force designation, were delivered in 1998 replacing aging VC-137 transports. The C-32A program value is $540 million including logistics support through 2005.

In 2004, Boeing announced its intention to cut off 757 production favoring next generation 737 and the cutting-edge 7E7 Dreamliner. Boeing delivered the final B757-200 airplane to Shanghai Airlines on 28 April 2005 marking the end of 757 production. Boeing produced 1,050 757s over a 23-year period that started in 1983.
