In regards to the B727, its used by LAWA for sublease to various film making organizations. You might be surprised but the airport gets an incredible amount of production work in its facilities. Everything from major motion pictures and TV shows to commercials and even music videos.
LAWA has kept parts of the old terminal and tower around to be available for such productions as well.
I noticed that bird when I was at ONT
over the holidays...meant to post the question, but it slipped my mind. (Is it airworthy or ground-bound? Is there an interior or is it for outside looks only?)
In regard to the filming... If I'm not mistaken, doesn't LAWA* strongly encourage/force those wishing to film to ONT
since they (from my understanding) don't want to deal with it at LAX
(understandably since it's the much bigger and busier airport)
*- Is there an accepted pronunciation for this or is it always "Los Angeles World Airports"? I always want to go for "Laa Waa", but not sure if anyone else would know what I was talking about
