Seen here are 2 ex-American 727's being prepared for their new owner IRS Airlines. The 727 in the front has no registration yet but I believe it was N843AA (later to be registered 5N-RIR). N844AA in the back was stolen on May 25, 2003 from Luanda, Angola. Appears to be the last known photograph of this airplane.

Great capture!! There's an American Airlines pilot with a blog on gadling(dot)com who has a few old Flickr photos of him flying in this exact same stolen 727 back when he was a Flight Engineer. If I'm remembering right one of his blog posts tells the story as well.
