Do you think that ATA neeeds to retire it's boeing 727's early than expected or do you think they should still fly them until they retire them later on as expected?

They had an engine fire on board a 727 that just landed in Indianapolis en route from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale. They already announced retirement of their 727s anyway. By the end of the year, I think.

The ATA 727's are pretty reamed.. It's certainly time to retire them.

You have to admit though.. Given the age of the 727's in the skies, there hasn't been a serious accident (That I'm aware of) for many years. What a great plane.

No way, this sort of stuff happens. It doesnt mean that they should retire it. And if they did its not like they could go out and buy A320s to replace them.

LONG LIVE 727

Thank you, Mah4546 -- I heard about an incident involving an ATA flight to IND from FLL, but the report didn't indicate what type of a/c was involved, or the reason for the emergency landing.

Ironically enough, I was at IND for the better part of the day on Sunday, as I arrived in the morning and returned home late evening for the Formula One race. I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I did, however, notice several ATA aircraft (mostly B727 and L1011, in various liveries) parked near the runways. Does anyone know the status of these aircraft?

ok folks time folks time for the facts. After speaking with ATA MX i discovered it was a tail pipe fire ...VERY common.The media blew the whole thing up to be some time off huge engine fire!

As far as the aircraft at Indy: The 727's will ALL be retired by the end of October instead of spring next year due to the effects of the WTC tradegy.

The L10's are still flying PHH, Travel City charters, and increased Military flying.
