Boeing 757-300

The Boeing 757-300 is a stretched version of the 757-200 model. It shares the narrow-body twin-engine design of the original, with the fuselage stretched before and after the wings.

General Info

Extending 54.4 m (178’5”) from nose to tail, the 757-300 is the longest single-aisle twinjet aircraft ever built, outmeasuring the standard 757 by over 7 m (23’). As with all 757s, it features a two-crew-member glass cockpit and a supercritical wing designed to reduce aerodynamic drag.

    The Þingvellir plains are a spectacular rift valley in southwest Iceland created by two tectonic plates drifting apart–one of the few places in the world where this can be observed on dry land. There the Alþingi, one of the world's oldest parliaments, was founded in 930 AD. Meet our flag-bearing plane.
