The 757 was designed as a replacement for the 727.  It features the same cross-section as the 727 with a longer fuselage, an all new wing, nose and flightdeck and fuel efficient high bypass turbofan engines.

The 757 was developed in tandem with the widebody 767 so the two could share a number of systems and technologies including a common flightdeck.  The first flight of the 757 was in 1982.
