BOEING 757: The twin-engine 757 was first rolled out in 1982. Aimed at increasing fuel efficiency and passenger comfort while lowering noise, Boeing produced the plane for 23 years before delivering the last one to Shanghai Airlines in 2005. The airplane is far from gone, though. There are still about 1,000 still in service, carrying passengers under banners from United to Royal Nepal and freight for UPS and FedEx.
Here, a United Airlines Boeing 757 makes the first landing on new runway 27R at O'Hare, on Nov. 20, 2008.
