I've realized that the 727 looks hot no matter how you paint her! Add a stylish 80s livery...

What are your favorite 727 paint schemes?

Here are mine... please feel free to add!

All of those appear good

I grew up seeing NW 727s a lot and never got tired of them. How I do miss them.  Sad

I also liked the 727 with the Northwest Oreint paint scheme.

I'd say this is my favourite:

I didn't even know that ATA had 727's.....The paint scheme looks good on the 727 though.

My favorite 727 liveries would be a tie between NE's original Yellowbird scheme & EA's original hockey-stick/Whisperjet livery.

Both were owned by Aviogenex (Serbian charter). I don't know where are they now, but they probably changed livery.
