727's

Postby Dave Reed » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:53 pm

A few 727 photos I found on Facebook (Facebook/Boeing 727 Group) and a few other places.

N710AA later landed in Dallas with the left main landing gear retracted. N715AA now hauls freight for USA Jet

N857N flew for Piedmont for 20 years before being broken up for spares. N555PS flew for Piedmont for 11 years. Today it hauls freight for RIO Linhas Aereas in Brazil.

Foreground: JA8317, a 727-81, delivered in 1966. Ended up carrying freight for Express One. Scrapped 1993.

Braniff 727-227 delivered to Braniff in 1972, then to American. In 1985 the #3 engine separated from the aircraft while enroute from Dallas to San Diego. Now parked in the desert.

The 727 is something else, to me it s like a sports car only with wings :)

The picture with all the birds aligned is absolutely spetacular!

Am I the only fool that feels a little/sad melancholic when I read that some of the are actually scrapped or lying parked in the desert?

No you are not, I still flew on this birds when I was a young boy, in the route TAP has from Lisbon to Madeira Island, good memories...that back door boarding is something you never forget :)

Sadly the only accident TAP had in over 70 years of history was precisely with a 727 (CS-TBR) landing in Madeira in the former (and much shorter) runway in bad weather conditions and after the pilot insisted in landing after 2 failed attempts, that was back in 1977...
