Boeing 757-200 (RR RB-211-535C engines)

Eastern 757-225, Los Angeles Int'l (LAX) September 1984 (Andrew Abshier)

This variant was the type ordered by the 757's launch customers, Eastern Airlines and British Airways.  Both flew with the earlier variant of the RB-211-535 engine, which featured a short cold stream cowling and exposed hot stream cowling.  Eastern eventually upgraded their 757s with -535E4 engines, but British Airways continues to operate -535C engines on its original 757s to this day.
