An old friend is departing - 757
Pilots loved the 757. I had a friend who was an airline pilot and he loved the 757. It was overpowered, so in a few situations the pilot could get out of trouble by "hitting the gas."
To commemorate the occasion later this month BA painted one of the three last aircraft, G-CPET, in the original livery (paint job). Though being retired from BA service these aircraft will serve many more years in cargo service or in a 3d-world country that operates old aircraft.
