Boeing 727-200 (N284SC)


KIFP - Feb 1998 Sun Country 727-2 loading pax after a weekend junket to Laughlin,NV Casino's in the background. This photo taken in Arizona, at Laughlin-Bullhead City,AZ Airport. The time difference is 1hr across the Colorado River along the lower tree line this time of year, in front of the Riverside Hotel. This jet headed to MSP with a lighter load - wallet wise. CN:21438 LN: 1301. The Riverside Casino? The top floor glassed penthouse, is actually an apartment for the last holdout who lived along the river and would not sell her property to the Casino. So they promised to build her a Top Floor apartment and she could live there till she died. That sealed the deal, and that is why that apartment is atop the building!.

P.S Tom Where is the River?
Awesome picture! That's Super 27 (re-engined). It was fun to watch the 722 struggle on takeoff during those 110+ IFP summer degree days!

Mike, Mike and Biscayne_ thanks for the comps - my bad on the angle MP - the river is in front of the Riverside Hotel, my bad eyes thought it was viewable in this photo. I'll update the caption. Biscayne738 I'm unsure if this was a Super 27 at this time, there was no indicator on the engine nacelle like the others, I'll have to do some checking...but you are correct, watching the 727 depart here in the winter was fun, I bet the hot summers were even better. My 727 take off video was on until they went belly up...I'll have to repost to my youtube page: search in MarsAveSo
