By the way the 757 and 727 share a common lower deck cargo hold and upper
deck passenger lobe - the 757 was originally just a re-engined 727-200 - it
even started off with the 727-200 t-tail - minus the intake for the number
two engine.  It still has the flat aft pressure bulkhead design (without a
door in it) from the 727-200.  It is interesting to note that both the 727
and the 757 have a deeper aft cargo bay than in the forward end.
