I wonder if the modern planes you refer to will still be flying in 30 - 40 years time?
I used to work and fly on the old Vickers VC10s. The aircrew were always bringing their mates on test flights so they could have some hands on. All of them loved it and without fail would say what a great aircraft it was to fly. Modern aircraft may be easier to fly, but better? not always.

Hey, I'm not referring to the performance of the 727! I love ye olde three-holers and the 727 is THE greatest plane ever in every way you look at it.I was talking about the working place in this cockpit, surely all original parts from back then.
UPS or FXs 27s don't look like this.
