History Of 727-200 N615PA?

Fri Sep 21, 2007 5:42 am

I was at the Manchester (NH) airport as this plane landed after its flight from Newark. It was carrying the New Jersey Devils for their NHL pre-season game versus the Bruins. Is this a Pan Am plane? As you can see, it's all white. But all of Pan Am's 722s have the PA suffix, so I wasn't sure who really owns & operates the jet.

Thanks!

That aircraft never flew for the original Pan Am. It was delivered to AZ, before going to People Express, then CO, and later many more smaller operators.

Not all of PA B722s had the PA suffix.

Dang...my picture doesn't do any of these justice. It was totally devoid of any paint scheme this morning; totally white as you can see. Maybe it's between schemes  Big grin

Well, I was referring really to the current version of Pan Am...you know, the one owned by the railroad guys. That's a whole 'nother subject, and a sore spot with me. I'm most sorry that there's a distinct New Hampshire connection to those shysters.
