Airport overview taken from the top floor of the airport hotel that is located at the center of the terminals. American Airlines still operated the 727-200 at the time, I'm guessing this was on their final years of operation before being withdrawn from the fleet. This wonderful location is also not accessible anymore.

Yes, the 72S fleet was withdrawn shortly after 9/11, similar to United and, as I recall, Delta.

By about 1999, American had consolidated 727 operations at Miami. I was ORD-based as a United flight attendant at the time. While we had a significant 727 operation at ORD until the pull-down in November, 2001, American's 727 had disappeared entirely at ORD - except for the occasional 727 bound for Miami. American's were overwater-equipped and did many Caribbean and central America turns out of Miami, plus did lots of domestic feed up and down the east coast.

Ah pre 9/11 2001. 727, DC-10 and maybe a few L1011. Also the US still had Viewing platforms
