the flight was crewed with AA staff. They flew a F100 into MHV before flying the 727 to BFI.

BFI is Boeing Field in Seattle, the airplane was a donation to the Museum of Flight.

As far as I can see there, that is N874AA. Boeing 727-223(A), msn 21386/line #1333. Delivered to American in April 1978. May this bird live forever. Regards.

Beautiful  Smile I hope they don't cut it in half like that USAir 737-201 that's there. When are they going to put 747 #1 into the display,I've never been in a 74 and would like to.
Was the F100 to Mojave premanent or just temporary ?

Scott - These shots are with a Nikon D100, the first one with a 80-200 AFS lens, the cockpit shot with a 24-85 AFS G. Still love the Coolpix though  Big thumbs up it goes with me everywhere.

This 727, along with the 737 prototype stored at Moses Lake, will be dragged across Marginal Way to the new building area on either Feb 22 or 23rd. Should make for some great photos, but I will be in Hawaii  Sad

The F100 is permanent.

Eventually the 747 will be housed along with the United 721 and BOAC Comet they are restoring, as well as said 722 and 731's mentioned above.

Here is another shot, looking forward from the aft galley.

If you have never been on an empty airliner, without any lights, it is totally creepy. Gives me the chiils.

The overhead bins look new also. I wonder if AA put a new interrior on this plane just before it went to the museum. It would be good advertising for AA's new seats and MRTC as many at the museum will see it....just a guess.

I doubt it. While the seats might be of a newer style, they were well worn.

Royal, thanks for the photos. I saw the plane at BFI yesterday and was wondering why it was there.

BTW, if you mind me asking, how did you get access to get on board? Do you work for Boeing or the Museum of Flight?

I've also liked your shots at Sea-Tac and wonder how you got ramp access. The best I've done is through the fence by the South Satellite, and after being hassled by US Customs Police yesterday, I probably won't do that anymore.

Keep up the good work, I like seeing the Seattle shots here!

The 727's were refitted with new seats, interiors, and overhead bins back in 1999-2000. It was planned for the 727's to stay in revenue service through 2004 back when the airlines and the economy were doing much better.
