Unfortunately, knowing some on this forum, I have to declare "THE PLANE ON THE RIGHT"

The odds are in favor of a 727 in the photo. PSA only had 11 737s at any one time, while having a few dozen 727s. But then again, PSA only operated 2 L-1011s too. It would've been shear luck to have two of PSA's rarest birds in one photo shot. BTW, did PSA have 737s in that very last scheme? Regards.

That looks like the oh-so-beautiful nose of a Boeing 727-200.

I did a search under PSA, and only found 6 photos of a 737, but found 71 727's. So chances are its a 727. But it obviously could be either one. I say its probably a 727, but that's only based on the 6 to 71 ratio, buy looking at the photo, I can not tell if its a 727 or 737. It could be either one. I'll do some more homework and see if I can give a definite answer.

Its a 727 because the nose gear doors are closed. The 737 nose gear doors follow the nose gear. When the gear is down the doors stay open, when the gear goes up the doors close.

Because it has two sets of doors?

727-200...

The pitot tube on the "smile" looks more 727-ish than it does 737-ish...

The 727's nose is a little more sleek than the 737. So I would say, 727.

The 727 has a 2-part nose gear door. The rear part by the strut stays open when the gear is down. The front part only opens when the gear is moving. In the picture, the front part of the nose gear door is closed. On a 737, the nose gear door is one piece, therefore the whole assembly stays open when the nose gear is down. Therefore, the plane on the right is a 727.

Hope that helps.

By the way, the plane on the left is an L-1011.

Sorry, I had to do it. Big grin

To me it looks like an old Ford, but maybe Chevy. Oh, you mean the plane.  Big grin

I agree with 727, for nose gear door reason.

As for "slimmer nose" etc., aren't they exactly the same as 737?

I agree with Bohica. Comparing the nose gear doors from all of the PSA 727 and 737s on the database it is clear that this is a 727.

727, because of the gear doors, and the type of pitot tube and placement.

As many have said, it's a 727-200. The proof is in the different shape/number/position of the pitot probes, and the 727's two nosegear goors (closed in the PSA picture, open in this 727 shot).

GSPITNL, the truck is an F-350.

The airplane is, indeed a 727.

I know these both because I've spent lots of time underneath both.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yeah, 727.

The nosegear doors give it away.

I know the aircraft on the left is an L1011 and the aircraft on the right is a B727-200. As stated earlier on, the pitot tube by the nose is different than that of a B737. There would be 2 sensors on a 737, one over tope of the other. In this photo however there is only 1 senosr.

Actually the pitot tubes are one thing.......The biggest is the closed nose gear doors.....The only time that a 732 has closed nose gear doors is when the gear is UP.

This was settled back at reply 5 yet people still post calling it a 737...

Do people not read before they post?
