With the Boeing 757 in the news (re Rwanda refugees) here is another take on the now long-ceased Seattle 2004 production after just over 1,000 units. Well over half are thought to be currently in service in a variety of uses.
Asked at the Aviation Club lunch (see in this week’s BTN) about the aircraft, which has the same cross section as the 737 series, Stan Deal, Chief Executive Officer, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said that this happened before his time in senior management.
Joining the ranks of operators is ACC Aviation, the global aviation services group, which has announced a new partnership with Perigean Aviation, becoming the sales and marketing agents for an all-VIP Boeing B757-200, operated by Freedom II LLC.
With the aircraft set to take flight in mid-July, ACC Aviation’s partners will have direct access to a 62-seat VIP aircraft capable of transporting passengers and their luggage up to 5,200 miles in total comfort.
Phil Mathews, CEO of ACC Aviation, commented: "Taking on this aircraft is a great opportunity for our expanding team of aviation professionals across our business. The charter industry is experiencing incredibly high levels of demand for both private jets and larger commercial airliners, and this aircraft has historically serviced clients in both markets".

Correct. The Boeing 767, registration EC-LZO, is owned by Spanish airline Privilege Style and flew from Dusseldorf to Brize Norton for a British Government contract. Why such a large aircraft and why not charter a plane from a UK company.
