HK-2016 was N423PA, built in 1965. This aircraft, in Pan Am colors, made an appearence at the 1968 film "Bullitt", at SFO airport.

I can still hear the voice of Jim Backus saying, "Western Airlines, the Oooonly way to fly". Those were the best times to fly the airlines. If only we could go back to those days. Thanks for sharing.

Two of the finest American commercial birds ever built. The Boeing designers and engineers really knew their stuff back then.

Actually that 727 went on to fly with Delta and was broken up at VCV in 2002

Even sadder is the fact that both airliners were destroyed while in service. The 727 was destroyed by a toilet fire on landing at S Dom.
