What a great airplane the 727 was. Got my 1st jet type rating in a 727-100.

PSA had new 727s at KSJC back when. The smiling nose was always enjoyable. I flew on one to KLAX with my dad.

For 6 years i lived right in the approach path at PHL, I could always hear the FedEx 727s taking off. Those things are loud compared to newer planes, but i'm gonna miss em for sure.
