Known as the “Ferrari of commercial jets”, the 757 is an amazing, versatile, and beautiful aircraft. Since 1983, the 757 has been flying for airlines around the globe, and its operators are scrambling to replace it. However, no other airplane can compare with the the 757.
A different story exists in Infinite Flight. Almost no one flies this aircraft because of its many flaws. While in real life, the 757 can easily embark on long haul routes, in IF it struggles to fly even the shortest transatlantic flights. In contrast to real life, the 757 looks disproportionate and clumsy, in addition to the unrealistically high amount of thrust needed to taxi, unchecked takeoff v/s, and nose-down cruise. It does not have pilots, an interior, live instruments, wingflex, or scimitar winglets, numerous 757 variants are not included in Infinite Flight, many 757 liveries are not in the simulator, and the liveries that exist are often inaccurate.
To raise awareness for this badly needed rework, we decided to host an event.

Why we chose KRNT
Renton Municipal Airport (RNT/KRNT) in Renton, Washington, was the location of the final assembly line and testing of the Boeing 757.
Why we chose KSFO
San Francisco International Airport (SFO/KSFO) serves the location of Infinite Flight’s headquarters. Therefore, it is the place where reworks are created and the area in which to promote a refresh of the 757.
