Fedex Donates 727 To BIL

Fri May 03, 2013 12:19 am

Possibly the last 727 that will ever be flown into BIL. Arrives tomorrow 5/3 at 3pm local, tail number N468FE, flight 9034. Will be parked on the old Fedex ramp east of the terminal until the engines are removed sometime in the future.

I believe the airport will be using the plane for emergency training.

Aw, end of an era. We have one here in MKE also, donated for the same reason. At least they arent being sent to the desert. It sure is nice to be able to have them to educate first responders.

Will definitely miss those 'JTs roaring from atop the Rims... Was always so awesome to watch the 72s take off eastward over the city.

Cheers 727!

My first ever flight was on a UA 727 out of BIL. Sad end to an era.
