Unknown 727-100 At EWR

Sat Apr 13, 2002 5:05 am

I was just looking outside Terminal C to the runways and saw a plain white 727-100 taking off. The only markings I saw on the plane was a U.S. Flag on the tail.
Does anyone know who this belongs too? Where it goes? Cargo or charter? Has anyone seen this plane at your local airport? Any info would be great!

did it have any strip at all down the fuselage, or a small USAF emblem on the engines??? The Air Gaurd operates 4-5 C-22s which are our version of the 727 for troop transport, etc.

It did have a strip down the fuselage, but I couldn't tell what colour. But I did not see any USAF emblems. Thanks

Could also be the US Marshalls service. I think they have both a -100 and a -200.

I've seen that aircraft at EWR before, last time was probably a year ago.
