FX 727 At ABE?

Mon Apr 30, 2012 1:41 am

Hello,

For the past two or three months I've taken notice of a 727 in FX colors, but without titles just sitting on the cargo ramp at ABE and hasn't since. Does anyone else have any more information about this bird?

It is B727-022(F) N194FE (MSN 19143) if it is the aircraft in the picture here: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/23269353@N00/4796945291/

Best possible explanation from the link above:
FedEx donated this aircraft to Lehigh Valley International Airport for ground training. She was built and delivered to United Air Lines in 1967 as N7079U; FedEx purchased the aircraft in 1990 and retired her in 2006. My apologies for the poor quality of the photo; I snapped it at the last minute from an aircraft just before touching down; it was also dark and dreary outside.
