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 information

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.
