The Boeing B757-200F is a medium range cargo aircraft capable of transporting 36,000 kg via an internal pallet system. Cargo pallets require a high-loader to access its main deck.
History and Features
The 757-200SF, a conversion of passenger 757-200s for cargo use, entered service in 2001. Modifications by Boeing Wichita in Kansas included the removal of passenger amenities, main deck structural reinforcement, and the installation of a 757-200PF forward fuselage section with a port-side cargo door. The forward two entry doors are retained, resulting in a main deck cargo capacity of 14 pallets, which is one less than the 757-200PF. Environmental controls can be fitted for animal cargo, and rear exits and window pairs are retained on some aircraft.
Aircraft of similar capability are: Airbus A321, Tupolev Tu-204
