This picture clearly shows how big the 727 was in its glory days. You can 727s of 7 majors US carriers of that time; NW, UA, DL, EA, TW, CO and AA. Great tribute to the 727!

Wow! Ten aircraft visible, and eight of them are 727's! Definitely an era that's long past, brings back memories though.

Fabulously nostalgic with all those 72's and lurking in the distant fog a lone EA A-300.

NW's old colors were really beautiful and eyecatching also and make for a great focal point in this photo.

This is so cool! I remember flying a Delta 3-holer our of La Guardia in 1980. This is very much what it looked like that day, except there were even more Eastern jets on the ramp. All 727s. Man I miss those days!! T-tails and aft mounted engines are quickly becoming a thing of the past... so sad.

Note the only livery still around is AA, they really got it right. By the way (today) the 727 burns way too much gas and the power to weight not too good either. Long live the 757!

This photo is a classic. It's like a high school year book...some old friends we never see again, and others change. But there is always that one friend that stays the same (reference to AA)

The 727's ruled the roost back in the day. Wonderful days those were. I wish for those days to return. Unfortunately, they never will. No more TWA, Eastern, Northwest, and now Continental.

This photo almost makes me want to cry, especially since it's focused on that NW 727. My very first flight was on a NW 727-200ADV from BWI to DTW. It's super impressive that there are legendary 727s from seven U.S. majors, captured in one shot! And out of all of those airlines, only THREE exist, today... AA, DL, & UA. CO is basically gone with the UA merger ... TWA is gone(merged into AA) ... EA is gone (liquidated). Sigh, we'll never have American glory days of aviation like this, again. At one point, the U.S. had over a dozen 'majors'... now we have about four?? Wonderful photo! Did anyone else catch that red New York Air DC-9 behind the EA A300??

I loved the 727. Great to see so many of them in different liveries in this picture.

If the 747 was (and she still is ) the "Queen of the Skies" then back when this photo was taken, the 727 was the "Princess"

A fantastic capture! Eight 727's! I really wonder if we will all get misty-eyed in 25 years time by a a picture of 8 A-319's, anno 2011. I don't think so...

Only American's color scheme survives to this day, and all these brands are now only three. And the three appear in the picture. You get that 70's feeling on this pic

This possibly the greatest picture taken I have ever seen.
The nostalgia of what the 80's and the airline industry represented all in one photo.
The 727's in it's prime, the graininess of the picture and the old pain schemes just bring back so many memories of when air travel was a fun adventure.

What I love about this picture is how great the liveries look together. A bit livelier and more interesting than today's bland exercises in minimalism.
