Eastern Air Lines Boeing 757
N508EA (c/n 22198)
To replace their (by then) aging 727s, Eastern, in
1982, ordered a fleet of 25 Boeing 757s.
Service with the new airliner commenced on 1 January 1983. N508EA
seen above was on
into Washington national Airport in February of 1984 when this
Bob Garrard was taken. Upon the demise of Eastern it, along
with roughly a dozen
others went to USAir. N508EA was re-registered N603AU. The
757s were relatively easy
"unload" to other carriers and very few wound up in desert storage.
