In my opinion Delta Air Lines old and new colors were made for the 727. It is absolute perfection, what do you think? OLD

DL (old colors) B727 is one of the prettiest/sexiest airplanes ever.

Well it was never painted but I think that the 727-200 painted in the NEW Air Canada coulours would have been the best looking 27 in the air.........


But since it was never re-painted into the new colours I would have to say that it is ROYAL airlines 727 with winglets......

Please refute me if I'm wrong.

Delta is by far the queen: (old livery only!)

Too bad they're both replacing their 727s with 737-800s instead of MD-90s. What a shame.

Best of all is to look at the old Delta 72 livery from about 3 inches away and to feel the skin (paint) ... not looking at silly online pictures ... same applies to your women. Simply the best in the air and on the ramp.

Definitely Delta's Old-New scheme. Anybody who has seen a 727 in this livery has just got to love it.

What about KIWI and UltrAir?
Does anyone have any pix of UltrAir? I haven't been able to find any in the database.

---------------------------------

That's because (with one exception) they were all listed as "Ultra Air" instead of "UltrAir" ... I'm busy fixing that now...

Here's some samples:

These are the ones I really like:
CPAir - Too bad they ditched them in favor of 737-200s. Believe it or not, I flew on a CPAir 727 once.

TWA's experimental bare metal scheme on N64339 in 1981 was good (no photos on this site), but the Rocket stripe is classic.....

Of course Pacific Western's 727-100 also had a nice look to them, sorry about the photo, it's the best one I can find taken on a combi run to Yellowknife (aircraft is named "Wop May" fyi):


My other favourites are:

also a -100 but looking good:
