    I read a little piece in Equipment World today about the new 757 that Cat has out superseding the 757G. No letter after it as is the trend again. I sure would enjoy a minute loop or two in one. For this I will not charge any wages. 21% bigger cab with more comfort, better economy, claiming 7% more fuel efficiency, and a host of other improvements. Please let me know if you need a test operator. :):):)

    With the 757 model number I was wondering if Boeing was getting into scrapers and out of 737 aircraft.

    Or both could be duds and spend the same amount of time parked.

    OOPs, I did mean 657. I must have gotten excited and could not see straight. Notice it was after 8 PM when I posted it. I am old. :confused:

    I give you credit for that. I might have said I was under the influence by that time of day.
