Hi everyone,

After so much going on with the retirement of the A300 at American, I thought it would also be nice to post a tribute to the venerable three-holer since it has now been out of production for 25 years. The last of the 1831 built 727's rolled out of the Renton plant in September of 1984, a 727-200F built for Fed Ex.

Enjoy the video:

For those who are interested, here is the link to the 727 page in my website:

Gone from most operators, but still in the heart of some aviation enthusiasts including myself.

Thanx for this. The 727 is certainly a very nice bird. I have been lucky and been a very happy passenger on the 727 several times:

Pan Am x 4

Mexicana x 2

Sterling European x 2

American Airlines x 2

My father was a captain of B727,I was very lucky to ride the jumpseat countless times on that beautiful bird.I can say easily it had a great influence that I became an airline pilot today.We sure miss those .83 mach cruise speeds nowadays.

Was the 727-200LR ever an official variant or was it just an internal AN term for a higher MTOW Adv. model with an extra fuel tank. I can't seem to find anything else mentioning it outside of AN. AN had 4 built in 1981 designed to be able to do SYD-PER nonstop with a full payload against headwinds something the Adv. model couldn't do year round. But apart from that I don't know if anyone else brough this variant.

But yes the 727 was a great I only can remember one flight and that was in December 1994 from DRW-ADL on one of these AN LR models.

It is interesting to note that the first 727-200F's built were the last planes off of the production line.

I flew on many 727's over the years including Piedmont, United, American and TWA. I even got lucky enough to fly on the 100 series with TWA in Europe 20 years ago.

Hopefully it's a long time until we see the last 727 flying.

From a pilots perspective it's a real joy to fly the 727. A real pilots airplane. I love when the autopilot is MEL'd and you hand fly it at .87 mach. (as long as it's a one hour leg any longer can get pretty tiring)

And to think Boeing nearly built a twin-engined 727 powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW2037 or Rolls-Royce RB.211-535 engines. That model would likely have extended the production life of the 727 well into the 1990's.

Truly a testament to one of the best birds to ever grace our skies. This just goes to prove, they don't make them like they used to. I've always considered the 757 as the 727 replacement. The two go hand in hand for some reason.

Just remember to always appreciate every time you see a 757...they are indeed the last best jet of our lifetime, and only because the 727 existed.

I've only ever ridden on a 727 one time, from MSP-DCA on Northwest, about 10 years ago. My recollection was of a pretty shallow 'cruise climb' over Wisconsin, not the steep deck angle we see on the Airbus 320 or Boeing 737.

I am tempted to take a jumpseat ride on FedEx while I still can. I did it on the DC-8 a few years ago at UPS just because I wanted to ride on one before they were all retired. Worth it!

One of the greatest airplanes ever made. At medium-size US markets like my home ROC, the 727 was the largest scheduled passenger airplane flown for many years. During the years it operated there--the mid 1960's to 2003--its economics made it suitable for all sorts of flights: nonstop hub flights, milk runs, and even many PTP flights to big business centers like NYC and DC. Its six-across cabin gave pax comfort on a wide variety of flights. I was always happy to see that a flight was on a 727--and I flew on countless 727's on many carriers over the years. Scores of US markets that today are mostly populated by RJ's saw many big, comfy 727's during the 70's and 80's.

At an airport that has never broken 3 million pax per year, 727's were flown by every carrier that operated them because they were so versatile. At ROC, AA, UA, EA, US/ AL, PI, RC, PE, NW, CO, and DL all operated 727s at one time or another. I flew them on most of those carriers.

My favorite 727 paint scheme remains the UA 70's and 80's colors, after their tweaking in the late 80's that lowered the cheatline a bit and enlarged the titles.

My first jet flight was on a Pan AM 727-100, After that, I've flown it on American, Eastern, Delta, Northwest, Western, Braniff, United, TWA, Alaska, Piedmont, Air Canada, Mexicana, Air1, Trans Caribbean, Air France, Lufthansa, Lan Chile, Ansett, Republic, Air Jamaica, Continental, and at least another half dozen carriers I've forgotten!

In the late 60's early 70's these were quite ubiquitous aircraft all over the place. I considered them boring just as we consider the 737 today as boring. From a passenger standpoint, I loved to fly on them. I never thought I'd see the day when they would be rare!

Agreed. Most trips in the U.S. in the 60s and 70s usually involved at least one 727. The best part of flying a 727 was watching the wing disassemble itself on approach/landing due to the complex flaps/spoilers/slats.

From memory, my 727 flights were on CP Air, Air Canada, United, American, Delta, Continental, Northwest, Northeast, TWA, Pan Am, Eastern, Western, Braniff, Hughes Airwest, PSA, Air France, Alitalia, Lufthansa, TAP, South African, Ansett Australia. Interestingly, half of those airlines no longer exist.

The 727 has always been my favorite. There is nothing more graceful looking then seeing a 727 in flight IMHO.

But its intended replacement is my second favorite...the 757, even though I'm a t-tail fan.

I haven't seen a 727 since 2002. Not in motion anyway. Bummer.

In my first 20 years of flying, probably more than 70% of the flights were on 727's. My favorites were, of course, those flown by PSA. The smile was always the best. I can recall also flying on United, Bonanza, Delta, Piedmont, Eastern, Western, Continental, Hughes Airwest, and TWA.

My last 727 flight was on United TPA-DEN about 10 years ago. I remember thinking that I wouldn't get a chance to do it much longer and I was right. Took a seat behind the wing so I could watch that wonderful wing action.

Oh, and American
