A 727 with a lengthy pedigree! Del in 10-65 to Northwest, it passed through a succession of owners and leases (National, Pan Am, Majestic Air, Carnival,etc.) as described in "Airliners" mag., Mar-Apr 94 (the article strangely omits mention of its short-term lease to B. Ex). Leased to Bahama. Exress by Pacific Interstate, whose oversprayed markings are visible in photo on upper fuselage and tail. Consigned to waters off Key Biscayne, FL, as artificial reef (!), 9-8-93.
