Where Did AA`s 727 Go?

Sun Aug 15, 2004 5:26 am

Hello fellow net members. This is my first post!!
(I know not to ask about NW´s DC9 replacement, or to ask whether Airbus or Boeing is better), I´d like to know if anyone has heard of whatever happened to AA´s 727-200, reg: N844AA. It was supposed to be converted into a freighter for IRS Airways in Africa.

Does anyone have an Idea?

There are 2 gutted, engineless birds that were transformed into fire fighting trainers on the extreme SW corner of MCO airport. Devoid of markings, but you can still see the outlines of what used to be...

SO sad...

Planet Airways has some of them, actually I believe that all of Planets aircraft may be ex-AA birds.

Jatayu Airlines of Indonesia is operating a couple of ex American B727s. They didn't even bother to repaint them, so they're flying in basic American c/s with Jatayu stickers. They look real worn though.
