727-200 is listed as being 153' long, is this from nose to #2 exhaust or is it from nose to to end of tail which sticks out another 12' or so behind the exhaust

According to the MPD, the B727-200 series measures 153'-2" from the forward tip of the radome to the aft end of the tailplane fairing (not including the HF probe, if installed). The measurement from the tip of the radome to the aft edge of the #2 engine exhaust is 136'-2" (this is before current hushkit installations).

Neither. The length measurement is, I remember, from the nose to the furthest aft point (the horizontal stabilizer tips).

Greeneyes, I think Bommer is correct. The furthest aft point is the tail cone, which is the cone between the elevators. (not the stab)

No problem Jt8djet, it was probably the nicest thing anyone has called me all day!!. HeHe

Greeneyes, I understand where you are coming from. If I were needing to make sure I could put one in my hangar and still close the doors, your point would be well taken. Then again, if the HF probe were installed, it would add another 7 feet. This measurement would be found in other manuals that I don't have readily available. My answer was based on manufacturer's data to identify to what part of the aircraft the 153' dimension given in N1641's question.

I don't really know. You're probably right.
