What B727 At LHR Today?

Sun Nov 21, 2004 2:33 am

As I was driving to LHR this morning, I saw (and heard!) a B727 with winglets take off from 27L.

Anyone know what plane this was?

Saw one on finals yesterday - looked like it was in QR colours so can only presume it is one they keep for royal/VIP flights. Maybe someone else can confirm this?

Having worked in Qatar for seven months this year, I can confirm they don't have a B727. The Royal/VIP fleet consists of a Hawker 800, 2 Global Express, A319, A320, A330 and 2 A340.  Nuts

I should add that the B727 took off about 08:30.
