    1. I’m not a pilot but what is the two take-off field lengths for? one for one type of Pratt=Whitney engines and the other for another type of Pratt whiteny engine? if so if you are contemplating constructing a runway to handle the 757-200 you’d need a runway 7750′ not 6000′ like I was suspecting.. hmmm?? Width of runways still 100′? just checking

      1. Every engine brand and type has a different performance, and so take-off fields will be different; runway widths are dependable on type of aircraft; please read following link for more information on runway widths.

      1. Diameter of the fuselage: vertically 4.01 meter (158 inch); horizontally 3.76 meter (148 inch), both are exterior measurements

  1. According to your info, the PW’s cause the 757 to have greater range then the RR powered ones. It was my understanding that it’s the other way around. That’s why RR powered 757’s are more preferred for over the pond flights. I know on paper the PW have that advantage, but actual performance wise, the RR’s win.
