Anyone who remember a late 60's or early 70's decision by the SAS board to buy some 727's?
IIRC they seriously considered the -200 but it never materialised.
Any idea why they never got the 727? Too close relations with Douglas in those days?

I have seen a artist's painting of an SAS 727-100 that a friend of mine has hanging in his living room. Personally I have three rare models(along with other SAS models) I inherited from my grandfather when he passed away. One is a SAS 757 in the viking scheme, MD-80 in the viking scheme and HS 748 in viking scheme. They were given to him by Douglas, Boeing and Hawker Siddley trying to get him to purchase those planes for SAS.
