Boeing 757-200SF

The 757-200SF, a 757-200 passenger conversion to cargo use, entered service with DHL Aviation in 2001. The modification by Boeing in Wichita in Kansas includes the elimination of passenger services, the structural reinforcement of the main platform, and the installation of a 757-200pF section forward fuselage, with a loading door port. The forward two gates remain, resulting in a capacity of main cargo deck of 14 pallets, which is one less than the 757-200pF. Environmental controls can be fitted to the stocking, along with the rear output and the pairs of the window. In addition to Boeing, Israel Aerospace Industries and Services of ST Aerospace has handled 757-200SF conversions. In September 2006, FedEx Express U.S. announced a plan $ 2.6 billion to acquire more than 80 757 freighters converted to replace its fleet of 727. From July 2011, 70 converted 757-200SFs were in service.
