United Airlines' (Chicago) first retired Boeing 727-200 (N7258U) just wouldn't go to its fate! The stop at Colorado Springs (on the way to San Francisco) was a mechanical stop. The aircraft had to be ferried to Denver for repairs!

Hey, would you mind not ripping off other peoples work and presenting it as your own. This is verbatum off of todays (March 7th) Airlinersonline.com daily update. Next time you decide to steal intellectual property, give the rightful authors some credit.

Relax.
Did someone copy off your test in class at some point?
Who cares where is comes from...it's an anecdote.
No harm done.
I'm sure he doesn't mind that someone is using his 'intellectual property'

Spacepope-

First of all, I never represented it as mine. It may surprise you to know that I don't have a direct link to the wire reports running into my computer room, nor does anyone call me with news such as this. I'm sure people realize this. As far as verbatum, you may notice the title was mine all mine (and dont' try to rip it off or someone on a bulletin board may feel you've stolen something).

I was mearly sharing something I thought was of interest, and funny to boot.

However, if it makes you feel better.

HEY EVERYONE-I DIDN'T COME UP WITH THIS NEWS MYSELF! I FOUND THIS ON THE INTERNET AND THOUGHT YOU WOULD FIND IT INTERESTING.

I find it very interesting. I consider myself an intellectually advanced person, and I have no problem with your story.

That is intriguing. It is also kindof... hmmmm. It had mechanical troubles AS SOON AS they took it off line? Perhaps they should retire more than 25 per year....

No, I don't really believe that, all you fanatics that say they are as safe as the day they rolled out of BFI. I love 727s. But, what does that say about UA's maintenance attitude toward retiring planes? I am not sure what it says. It either says that they cut corners or that the malfunction was merely coincidental.

Actually, yes, I have had some one rip off my own research. They used it as their own presentation for the Romer Prize, which carries with it a $10,000 award. And not only did this person botch the talk, but now I am forced to conduct entirely new research so that I won't present the same idea in front of some of the best minds in my field. I don't take lightly to people taking other people's work. Now i'm not going to wax all Napster on you, all that I ask is that next time you include your source, because without it, it's plagarism.

BTW this is not a personal attack on you, just a reminder for everyone on here.


P.S. Shouldn't the title be "The 727 that couldn't wait to die"?

So an A320 or something was late being delivered so they couldn't put it through retirement?

The 727 had a mechanical problem in flight and had to divert to COS, was ferried to DEN, then finished the trip to SFO.

People! People! People! We are forgeting what this article is about, not who broke the news! Come on! I could not help but do a mental fist pump for the 'ole three holer not wanting to go! Instead of bickering on who's "story" it is, let's talk about an aircraft that has had an incredible career in commercial aviation. I personally will miss the 727.

Yes the 727s will be missed by most of it's crew
and many of it's passengers alike. You will never meet a pilot who has flown the 727s and who won't give it any praise. Even by today's standards the 727s remains one of the smoothest airliners ever built.
Kindest regards

The point of writing on here is to tell people some news in the aviation field. Noone really gives a crap who first came up with it. Don't let the little things get yua down. We are just here to pass the facts not give an entire bibliography about our sources.
