Boeing 727-200 (N84356)

Submitted

KSLC - early up on a driving trip to Denver - 1988 or 89..a quick trip through the SLC terminal caught this TWA 727 headed for the main north-south departure runway for a probable trip to KSTL/STL St Louis MO. There was a Pan Am 727 and a Hawaiian Air DC-8 here getting ready to roll also..........if only I had more time!

Thanks Anson - 727 was a cool jet! TWA 727s departing San Jose on the early flight after 06:30AM was real neat to watch before the Runway 30L-12R was extended. Those 727s would pull the back wheels off with little runway left.

Nice. My place of employment for 3 years. Flippin switches, sittin sideways. Oiler on the Boeing Tri-motor. 3 X JT8D-9, 14,500 lbs thrust. Turns JetA into noise.

The Boeing 727 is a mid-size narrow-body three-engine jet aircraft built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes from the early 1960s to 1984. My first every jet airplane flight was made in a 727 in 1971. It can carry 149 to 189 passengers and later models can fly up to 2,400 to 2,700 nautical miles (4,400 to 5,000 km) nonstop. Intended for short and medium-length flights, the 727 can use fairly short runways at smaller airports. It has three Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines below the T-tail, one on each side of the rear fuselage with a center engine that connects through an S-duct to an inlet at the base of the fin. The 727 is Boeing's only tri-jet aircraft.
Boeing designed a stretched version of the 727-100 that is 20 feet longer. The first 727-200 flew on July 27, 1967 and received FAA certification on November 30, 1967. The first delivery was made on December 14, 1967 to Northeast Airlines. A total of 310 727-200s were delivered before giving way to the 727-200 Advanced in 1972.

Worked a million of 'em in and out of ORD. The venerable "tri-motor".
