This is my first post so I hope the photo linked up ok. I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but this question is about the plane in the photo, not the photo itself.
I bought this framed 8x10 at an Antique store in St. Louis a week ago and was wondering if there is a way to identify this particular 727, since the tail number is obscured. On the back of the photo there is a large stamp reading K15038, photo by Boeing, does that number mean anything? Two other questions; what years did TWA have this color scheme? Does anyone recognize the mountain range in the background? I hung this photo in my office and my co-workers have asked me about it so I figure I would ask the experts. I would love to have a little history on the plane if that is possible. I used to fly STL-CVG on TWA in the early 90s and several times on what the FA said was the oldest 727 TWA had. I wonder if this was the plane. If I could find the tail number I would know.
