  • need help with airplane, Civilian

    I know nothing regarding civilian airlines, I flew Delta from Las Vegas to Manchester NH. I was pretty sure the plane was a 757 but like I said, civilian AC isn't my stuff.

    is there any way to tell from this picture, I can't tell military planes by sounds so I was hoping some civilian photog might know wings ?

    Go to the main menu and do a search for Delta 757 wing view shots, on the first page of results is a shot from behind the wing which pretty much proves that this was indeed a 757

    Having said that, you need to do something about the noise in that shot as it is currently below the standard required for acceptance.

      It is a B757 wing, but you have entered B757-300 and Delta does not have any B757-300's only B757-200's and since 99.9% of them are B757-232 there is a good chance that that is what you should enter in the aircraft box

        I see from the rejected photo that bad info rejections now specify which field contains the bad info. This is great. Well done jp!

          TBH it does'nt look like a 757 wing IMHO.

          Edit - I think it's just the way you've taken it

            thanks everyone, I appreciate the help and will see if I can fix up the noise enough to get accepted.

              Hmmm I'm not so sure thats a 757. I've flown on them many times, I will again on sunday, and that just doesn't look right. Mabey its just the angle.

                  That looks like a 757,it's not long enough for a 767

                    Sam, Look at photos in the DB and look at 757 wings. By the way, Who said it was a 767?

                      Looks like a 737-800 wing to me. I looked at 732's, but there weren't enough pylon things sticking out. So I'd say it's got to be a 737-800.

                        '

                        The A300's pylons that hold the flaps are flat at the end, these are pointed.

                        Looking at the Pylon shape and the number of small antennas (3) on the edge of wing, it can only be a B757.

                            I'm with Soren on this one, it's definitely a B757-200.

                            I've just done a quick search through the database of B752 wing views and found a couple of very similar looking wings to the one in question -

                            [photoid=5637531]
                            [photoid=499822]
                            [photoid=5631781]

                            Top Gun, if you decide to re-upload the photo, the aircraft type is a Boeing 757-232

                            Hope that helps
