This bird is 38 years old (msn 22470, 8/81).
Always is, and always will be, a thrill to spot a classic Boeing tri-holer.

Nice catch! Always something special about a tri-jet!
Darryl Sarno
Great catch of the original workhorse Gary! I have not photographed this bird so thank you for sharing! 5 *'s and many more for this classic!

Darryl >>> Yes, you have photographed this one. You posted a pic of it nine years ago.
Taken at BOS. Was wearing Capital Cargo paint when you snapped it.

Hey, RW, how are things down in San Antone? Hope all is well. Gotta get caught up on your recent posts. Been away, and it is easy to fall behind. TY for the comment.

Gary, it's the "South Texas blast-furnace" time here, Covid cases are on the rise big time. I usually don't go spotting much this time of year but the 22 action was nice while it lasted.
Gavin Hughes
Didn't know whose shot it was in the thumbnail it just looked like a damn good pic. Great photo Gary and isn't it good to see some still flying.
Diana Rose
A great plane, still is; flew on many, San Juan><Miami route back in the 70's...Pan Am. Seats in rear are quite noisy but if you want to parachute out, there's the ubiquitous rear door exit.

Gavin ... Thank you again. Diana ... TY for commenting. I agree with you 100%; Boeing's tri is indeed a great plane. Ever since D.B. Cooper did his parachute leap from Northwest's 727, those aft airstairs were reconfigured so they could not be lowered while the bird was airborne, but I'm sure some 21st century whiz kid could figure out how to do it. (lol)
RWB ... Sorry to hear the virus is expanding its impact there. Here in NV, our governor likes to make everyone believe that the city of Las Vegas IS the entire state, so he rattles on and on about how the virus is growing, etc. Actually, anywhere else EXCEPT in Las Vegas, the virus is present (of course) but there is no crisis as he loves to imply to the residents. As for your pics from 22, absolutely FANTASTIC photos!! Each and every one is powerful photography! Totally superb captures!! Here at RNO, our main (and longest) runway, 16R-34L (soon to be 17R-35L), is closed for the summer so everything lands on the parallel, and I have access to the edge of that parallel runway. So I'm taking advantage of that while I can. Please keep your excellent pics coming. Always 5 star snaps (actually, yours are always far better than 5 star). C ya!

I enjoyed my time in the "three-Holer",it was like flying a truck!
Tom Vance
Fabulous 727 pic Gman...!!! 5x as usual!
Robert Lloyd
A great airplane. I flew in many 727s back in the 70s-80s. On a BN flight DAL-AMA many years ago I sat next to an AA pilot deadheading home. He told me the 727 was the only plane flying (at the time) that had enough wing and enough power to make up time in the air following a late departure. He also said landing it wasn’t particularly easy—you just timed your trim and speed to stall when you came in low over the numbers and it dropped like a rock. It’s my understanding this is the last commercial aircraft designed with slide-rules (pre-computer). Or....everything he told me was a lie and I was just a kid listening in awe to his tales.

Alien ... Thanx, Tom. (Wave) Jim and Robert ... One of the reasons I like either posting my old photos of, or getting captures of, the first era of jetliners or even the old propliners is because it is great when folks reminisce about their experiences as pilots or as passengers just as both of you and Diana did here. My sincere Thanks to all three of you for sharing your remembrances.

EPIC snap of a classic metal Gary. Well done !
