Hi!

Well, we had the L1011, the 747, how about the 727? It was a classic and flew many years around the world. The 9/11 "killed him" but I'm sure we have here among our big "fraternity" some pretty good information. I "open the hostilities" on this topic:

Regrettably, I've taken just one flight on the 727. I've had so many opportunities to fly IB's in the past, but always ended up on something else, like an MD or Airbus/ATR  Sad

Flew this old bird from Damascus to Aleppo in Syria this January on Syrian Arab Airways - registration YK-AGD. She was looking a bit worn, but still has plenty of life left in her I hope!

Hi!

Dan, I wouldn't mind swooping one of my 727 flights for that one!!! I think the most "rare" 727 I flew was a Royal Air Maroc one!!! That's very exotic indeed!!!

My last flight on a B727 was on Pan Am on a flight from MIA to LGA in 1985 as a F/A. Then I started working on international flights and flew mostly B747's.


Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

My last flight was ATL-OKC via Tulsa on Delta in May 1999. Flight went via Tulsa.
What an old banger  duck  I thought, but handy for learning Spanish since all labels were bilingual.

Try a trip to Syria then, or perhaps Iran. The latter has relaxed Visa policies towards most EU states - if you are from Portugal you should have no trouble.

Unfortunately I recall that there are none of these left in commercial passenger service

Mine was TWA, and please correct me if it can't be true, but I believe in mid to late 90's, from STL to ATL. We were flying through storms on approach, and I could not imagine how we could possibly land safely ... we did of course! Every nut and bolt seemed to shake and creak for the whole descent!

My first 727 was also my first flight ever, on a Champion Air -200ADV, MSP-PVR back in March 2001 as part of a vacation package with my parents when I was almost 14.

My last ever 727 flight was the return trip a week later, same airline and everything. My first two flights were 727s and I haven't flown it since. I think its ironic, however, that I can still see Champion 727s today, and in fact saw one here in PHX the other day when it was bringing in the Cavaliers for a Suns basketball game. When I flew it, everyone flew 727s. Now, Champion is the only passenger airline in the continental U.S. to fly them (as far as I know).

Don't remember the exact dates, or even which one was first or last, but it would be the mid-late 90's on NW MSP-MCI or [some hub]-PIT. I was a crumb-cruncher, so I don't necessarly recall much except the fact I hated it because I thought the plane was ugly in design and there were no life rafts (I couldn't swim, and I didn't like the idea of holding onto a cushion full of farts and little kids' pee and other assorted crap or relying on a life vest).

the BW Parkway and I-95.
