Prototype 727 at the MoF
I missed the last flight of the first 727 (N7001U) last Wednesday, but I did get a chance to take a photo of it at the Museum the next evening. It is interesting how much attention this project generated. As a kid, very few airplanes were more boring than 727s, but in 2016 I was disappointed I couldn't see one fly. The old jetliners have disappeared quickly and become much beloved.
Modeler's Note: Many years ago Kendall Model Company issued a Boeing 727-200. My understanding is that the less said about it the better.

Actually, I heard that the KMC 727 wasn't bad. However, it was the last thing the company did before they stopped trading.
Popular with hijackers with rear door.
I always thought the 727 was cool and have flown on them a number of times over the years.
