F/F 26/10/67 & D/D 07/11/67 as N1957 to American Airlines, this 727 was originally intended for National Airlines as she had the Boeing Customer Code 35. After 27 years with AA, she was re-registered D2-FLY with Sonangol 07/94. She spent time with Ibis Air; Air Malawi; Trans Air Cargo & Air Gabon. Re-reg TN-AFY 05/99 for Trans Air Benin, she was stored at JNB 12/01 & scrapped here 11/04. I snapped her on a quick visit to SXM whilst working on a cruise ship in 1987. KR64 scan.

Thank you - I was lucky that it was a short 727, or it wouldn't have fitted in the 'palm tree' gap ! :)

The very first time I flew on a 727 was with American from LGA to ORD in September of 1967... I could have flown on this very aircraft!

Wonderful photo of a classic! As a child I wondered how the 727 balanced its (seemingly) heavy aft (three engines and a bit tail) with its (apparently) lean front.

I have thought that too, & also with the DC-10 and L-1011. :)
