Great photos,folks!
Like the AA,Mexicana(last photo,old colors) great for the
time, and Avianca.Speaking of Avianca,as a kid,took great
photos at LAX of Avianca 707 at the cargo bays. Western used to
park there a lot.

Hi

I think the 727 (200) is one of the most beautiful jets ever made. I am glad I had the chance to fly a 727 (N419DA, JFK-DCA) once in my life and it was really a great experience...

(here are some pics from that trip, tried to upload them here but they didn't make it trought the screening:S)

Fond of the old Northwest Orient 727's, flew those many times (along with DC-10's) on SFO-MSP runs in the 70's/80's. Always liked the diagonal white stripe on the tail.

Other times, we'd board at MSP on the other side of the terminal.

My father was not a fan of Western, but I do recall flying the same route on at least one occasion on one of these.

AS a youngster, my favorite 727's that could be seen at SFO included these:

Hughes Airwest were my favorites, though I never did get to fly on them.


Becoming a rare sight these days, except on the cargo ramps. Old birds still looking good today though.

My choices....PSA (of course), I'd paint a 747 in PSA colors...hehe.

Pan Am would be my next choice.

Then probably Eastern.

It's difficult because so many airlines used them, but those are my favs.
Catch a ride on a smile!

One of the few 727 that you still see in Europe are the 727 from Air Algerie and Libyan Arab Airlines. Any others ?
