"In 1993, the club purchased the current aircraft, a Boeing 727-200 and simultaneously retired the 727-100. It is configured for only 146 passengers ensuring business-class leg room for everyone on board. This "Flying Clubhouse" is equipped with "Super 27" engines and auxiliary fuel tanks which extend the range of the aircraft, providing non-stop travel to destinations up to 5-hours away. Routine inspections by aviation officials have rated the maintenance of our Boeing 727-200 second only to Air Force One, the plane that serves the President of the United States."
BTW - does anyone remember a "mystery dinner club" back in the 70's or 80's out of DAL that would have their member show up, board a flight with an "unannounced destination", and when they landed they were told where they were and would then be taken to dinner and flown back home?
Man... that's been a few years, but the Nomads website made me think about it.
