Summary

Summary

In the grand scope of Boeing's success as the world's leading builder of civil jetliners, the 757 and 767 are anomalies in that they were designed and built simultaneously -- the 757 as a single-aisle airliner for domestic routes, the 767 as wide-bodied transcontinental carrier. Author Thomas Becher describes the tandem development of the two airliners with a similar appearance but very different roles. Eight pages of color photographs complement a gallery of black-and-white shots, and help delineate the difference and display the similarities between the two types.
