Airlines Boeing 757-351 N596NW
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
retractable tail bumper and upgraded systems. If you
compare this to the prior entry,
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
now (2006) numbering more than 400 aircraft.
