After doing a little investigating, it looks like this is one of Paul Allen's 757's. Its former registration was N756AF. With it flying to Moffett, I wonder if the Google boys have new toy?

Larry Page is getting married this weekend on Nectar Island in BVI. That is Sir Richard Bransons little paradise. The article notes that the 600 guests will all be flown in on Private Jets to Terrence B. Lettsome Airport on Virgin Gorda Island in BVI. (code TUPJ)

Image N756AF B767-23A which has been re-registered as N1757. As N756AF the registered owner is Vulcan Northwest Inc. and used by the Seattle Seahawks. The owner of Vulcan is Paul Allen of Microsoft.

With the new registration being so similar and almost identical paint schemes, it seems likely. They can certainly afford it.

N2767 and N1757. Was the 757 blocked when this thread was created?

It was not blocked. FlightAware displayed only two prior flights, a loop around Kansas City (MCI) and then the flight to Moffett (KNUQ).

Paul Allen's company had two 757's (757AF & 756AF) in addition to a BBJ and some other biz jets. It looks like they sold one. His have always been owned by his company and N1757 is now owned by a bank. Also I think the reg on the N2767 is the same address as NetJets, which doesn't mean anything. It's probably a law firm.

Vulcan might have sold one of the 757's as they didn't have enough use for two of them. The Mariners chartered one of them but there is no affiliation between Allen and the Mariners. He owns the Seahawks and Trailblazers. I think they mostly use their biz jets for business travel. I saw Paul Allen fly into KPUW in the 757 once, that was interesting!

N1757 just left Moffett and headed north, probably to Seattle.

I like when you take the B757 International, to meet with your Global Express to take you to your
helicopter, to take you to your yacht. These are shots from Lanseira Airport in South Africa in July 06.

Sad news about Paul Allen
Quote:
Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer similar to the one he battled 25 years ago.
