Boeing presented UPS with an awesome gift for 150 aircraft delivered. Strange that it's given during the delivery of N613UP, which is UPS 151st Boeing aircraft.

Photo in the left window was taken in mid 1995 (note the old paint scheme) with a production 757 and the first 767 for UPS (which was in flight test) from a Boeing chase plane. For a photo flight it was a bit different as it was done at FL350 (normally photo flights are mid-teens) and started with a head on pass (1,000 ft seperation) followed by the 757 reversing course to join in formation. Very memorable flight.
