Northwest Airlines  Boeing 757-351  N596NW     (c/n  32996)


                                      In 2001 Northwest ordered 20 of the stretched series 300 version of the tried and tested Boeing
                                      757.   This aircraft has a 13 ft 3in extension forward of the wing and a 9 ft 9 in addition aft.  It also
                                      has a retractable tail bumper and upgraded systems.   If you compare this to the prior entry, taken
                                      at an identical angle, the stretch is very evident.  This nice landing shot was taken by Anthony Garcia
                                      on short finals into Minneapolis' Wold Chamberlin Field in April of 2005.   This machine is one of a
                                      fleet now (2006) numbering more than 400 aircraft.
