Hello guys!

If my eyes aren't playing tricks on me, that is a TU-154 parked with all those birds.
Now any idea how it was flown into Tucson and why? Doesn't it belong in Russia?

BTW, are any airlines going to put any of those planes back in service, perhaps cargo?

TNT is leasing TU204s not TU154s, and this is one of the 727s that has been retired last year (either OY-SES or OY-SER).

Cheers



Falcon....like a limo but with wings

It's definitely a 722, not a TU-154.

Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

According to Cactuswings, there are two TNT-painted 727's parked at TUC right now. They are OY-SER and -SEW. In addition Skypak-painted OY-SEV is visible on the picture.

Your right guys, in the small version it sure looked like a tu154, but after I looked at the pic in large version, sure is a 727 - no doubt.
