Today is the third anniversary of the Boeing 727 retirement at American Airlines. American flew the very final flight on Apr 30th 2002 as flight AA765 from TPA to MIA, the aircraft was registered N864AA. That is the exact aircraft shown in the picture below. I flew on the last flight that evening, that was my last flight ever on a 727.

After seeing thousands of posts about the A380 and the 787, I thought it would be interesting to change the subject and pay tribute to a beautiful classic airliner that has been a major workhorse in the United States for nearly 4 decades. FLYSSC has paid tribute to the Caravelle recently, I pay tribute to the Boeing 727 aircraft.
It may be gone, but it will never be forgotten.
