Who Has Owned/operated This 727?

Mon May 24, 2004 6:14 pm

on Friday I had the pleasure of my first 727 flight in a long time, still a wonderful aircraft, smooth and quiet. I'd be interested to find out where this aircraft has been since new.

Hi!

Taking in mind that Boeing uses the last 2 digits in their models to identify the customer, in this case the 81 was ordered and received new at Seattle by ALL NIPPON AIRWAYS.

CV990 I had no idea about this model number feature, is this still valid for current products too?

Hi Andz.

Yes it still working, if you go to the photo engines and you pop for example the 747-481 you'll see ALL NIPPON photos comming in. But understand that this only works with Boeing, I think it's quite neat because you can always trace the original buyer of a particular airplane. For example TAP/Air Portugal is 82, SAA is 44, TWA used to be 31 and Pan Am 21.

Hi!

Pretty neat the history of this particular example. Mainly it stayed in the Far East until it moved to South Africa. I remember that Korean Airlines at one time offered 2 727-200's to MIAT, now I see that it was one of them. A few years ago I read in a "AIRLINERS" issue about a round-the-world trip in a MGM DC-8-62 that when they landed at Ulan-Bathor Airport the mongoliansasked for technical help because they had problems with these 727's.

Hi Andz,

I just corrected and standardized the photos of this aircraft in the database for you. If you click on the "cn 20573/888" in the caption of the first photo you posted, you see all the photos of airliners.net of this aircraft, regardless of owner.

As for the BA 732 in the background of the picture, it is operated by Comair, a franchise partner of British Airways that serves destinations in South Africa. You won't see any of those in London!
