What is it about the Boeing 757 that has captivated airlines and passengers? The 757-200s were flexible workhorses, reliably transporting passengers and cargo to their destinations throughout their long careers. Check out N905AW, a Boeing 757-200 and the latest aircraft to join the MotoArt PlaneTags fleet.
The Boeing 757-200 is a medium to long range, narrow body, twin engine jetliner that was first introduced in 1983 as a replacement for the 727. The 757 was 80% more fuel efficient than the 727, even with its higher capacity and range. It also boasted a glass cockpit which electronically displayed flight information, enabling the flight crew to access information immediately without the need for a flight engineer. And with ETOPS and high altitude capabilities, the 757 could fly all over the world. Airlines and passengers alike loved the 757. Although production ended in 2004, with about 1,050 produced, the versatility of the aircraft has allowed it to continue flying, with some major operators including Delta still flying 757-300s, and various operators converting them to freighters.

N905AW was constructed as a 757-2S7 in 1986 and began its career with Republic Airlines (which later merged with Northwest Airlines), in May 1986. In November 1987, N905AW transferred to America West Airlines, adopting the call sign “Cactus.” To celebrate America West’s hub in Columbus, Ohio, in 1995 N905AW was decked out in Ohio state colors and named “The City of Columbus.” It was absorbed into US Airways in 2006, then American Airlines when the two airlines merged in 2013. This merger united two of the oldest airlines in the U.S., and created the largest airline at the time. American Airlines had 177 757-200s, many of which were inherited from US Airways. N905AW retired in November 2015 after nearly 30 years of service. MotoArt acquired the skin from this derelict aircraft before it was scrapped, in 2023
