MvN's Boeing 757 Website

About me

My name is Marcel van Noordenne and I am the moderator of ‘MvN’s Boeing 757 Website’. This website was created by me over 20 years ago, and I am still far from finished.

Although I try to be thorough, it is impossible to know and find everything about this great aircraft. Luckily I get help from visitors to this website, spotters, pilots, ground crew, airlines and airports who are willing to provide me with news and updates. That is why I can provide you with such an extensive production list, and thanks to several photographers who are willing to take pictures in any weather, I am able to extend the photo database regularly.

Thank you all for your help and suggestions, it makes this website better!


  1. thanks for site of b757, a truly remarkable aircraft,i say remarkable reason there is still no aircraft in its class,rightly said that the only competitor for b757 is b757 itself.the replacements are either wide body (higher class aircraft) or narrow body( these do not have the payload/range capacity of B757). regards pankaj Pradhan

  2. Hi there Marcel

    Thanks and congrats for this site about the unique 757 !
    I have some photos, if you might need or want !

    1. Hi Thomas, photos are always welcome! I will send you an email with my email address later today.

      1. Hello Marcel van Noordenne!
        I’m Zhao Qingwei, the postgraduate of Civil Aviation Flight University of China. Now,I do the research that is about the compare in B757-200 and B757-300. And I meet huge problem. I do not find the data about these plane. So I want to get some help from you. Could you send me the Flight Planning and Performance Manual of the B757-200 and B757-300.
        I will be appriciated for you. I want to get reply from you. You could contact me through e-mail. My e-mail address is

        1. Hi,
          Thank you for your interest in this website; I advise you to contact The Boeing Company for the manuals that you are looking for.

  3. Hi Marcel,
    What a sweet dog!
    I sent an email to you re: American Airlines
    A/C #617. I was wondering if that airplane has
    definitely been scrapped or is it still intact.
    I am a flight attendant and that a/c had a Plaque with my name on it in the forward entry door area.
    Just curious.
    Thank you and Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Amy,
      last sighting of this aircraft was March 22, 2015; I don’t have any contacts at Roswell and am dependable on whatever I can find on internet. Happy New Year!

    2. Amy Neal – There is chance I can get that plaque for you, if you want. A friend of mine owns the facility where the AA birds are parked.


    3. Hi Amy, I was in a group which visited Roswell in April 2017, (including a ramp tour). We did not see N617AM, meaning it was probably scrapped by then.

  4. Can you tell me whether the 757 flying Toronto to Dublin has full flat-bed seats in Business class or only reclining angle seats?

  5. Marcel, great site and the detail is amazing. I do have a question. Can we determine whether a 757 is PCF or SF by knowing where the conversions were carried out? Do you have a list of conversion locations and which does PCF or SF? Am I right that PCF is Boeing-licensed, and SF is not? (as with the 747 BCF and BDSF)
    Thanks a lot.

    1. Hi Ian, thanks for the kind comments; Mobile/BFM, Jacksonville/VQQ, Singapore/XSP and Xiamen are the airports I know for sure that 757s are being converted; not sure which is PCF or SF, sorry.

  6. Hi Marcel, I have an article from the July 23rd 1983 issue Flight International Magazine that outlines the 757’s first 6 months in service. Great insight into this remarkable airliner’s initial service operations. The 4 airlines profiled (Eastern, Monarch, BA and Air Europe) quickly recognized the versatility and capabilities of this new jet. In the early 80’s glass cockpits were new – I found the initial positive pilot reaction interesting as outlined in the article. I have always been intrigued by early 757 operations so I found this article very informative.. Please let me know what email to use – I’ll forward along and maybe you can post. Note I joined the group a few weeks ago.

    Thank you
    Jay Nichols
