Good info … too bad we have to convert much of it from metric here in the States.

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

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.

You have everything except the diameter of the fuselage which is what I am looking for

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

Look…here says “approach speed (PW2037 & RB211-535E4) 132 knots (245 km/h)”

but… here…http://www.flywestwind.com/hangar/aircraft_files/foms/B752FOM.pdf

says…Target Landing Airspeed: 160 KIAS. What’s the truth!?

132kts would be correct for a higher weight landing…160kts ways too high…

Does hydraulic fluid burn with black smoke?

Yes but when observing an aircraft fire melting wiring, plastics, and insulation produce black smoke as well as the jet fuel.

Possible fire caused by hydraulic fluid leak?

160 KIAS may exceed allowable tire rotation speed.

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.

Does anyone know what is the exact surface area of the 757-200 fuselage?

looking to purchase some stairs to fit the 757, no stats on ground to door sill ?

Hi Steve,

according to Boeing manual, the front passenger door:

min. height: 12’5″ – 3.79 mtr

max. height: 13’2″ – 4.01 mtr

Below the link to the Boeing manual:

does not give the interior width

Hi, the interior width of the Boeing 757 website is 11ft 7in (3,53 meter).

Thanks for all the info!!

Have you any of this information of the 737-800?

I’m doing a comparison between the 737-800 and the 757-200 and there is some data missing.

Hi Piluci, thank you for visiting the website; I do not have info about the 737-800; IU advise you to visit the Boeing website; it may have the info that you are looking for. Or maybe the following website may help as well: http://www.b737.org.uk/

Curious on the circumference of the fuselage itself past the cockpit area if anyone has that info?

please tell me about dimension of spoiler length and breadth ? how it is calculated with respect to wing dimensions.
