It is indeed heavy. the B752 was exactly 255,000lbs MTOW (except for those flown by ATA). The B753 definitely exceeds that.

I could very well be mistaken, but I’ve heard that the 757 and 767 for some reason put off a massive wake (advanced aerodynamics are a ways over my head huh).  Is this taken into account in the separation standards?  I wonder how the wake of a 767 series aircraft compare to the 747 or even the A380.

Yea the A380 is in a new cat. "Super" Light behind an A380 taskes 10 miles! In the UK 757s are M, 767 are H. But i think thats based on the 757-200. Not sure bout the 757-300. But we have H, M, S, L cats in the UK as apose to just H, M ,L.

I look forward to hearing it live.

I have some clips from when it was on approach, tower, and ground at JFK that i'll post soon...it was really funny hearing these new yorkers. they couldnt believe they were actually calling the thing "super."


Curiosity meter ticking up.  Can't wait.  Thanks.

I remember the first visit. General siliness ensued on the tarmac, with a regional also signing in as XXXX super. Good times.

they use both the Antonov and the converted 747.

I don't think so but have a picture of the modified 747 going under me. Empty of course.
