Something I have not seen in a LONG time - a flying 727, rare around these parts. And speaking of parts, she was supposed to be here at RDU picking up auto parts - not sure if that was the reason, but I certainly didn't need one, and it was thrilling to be able to see her, hear her, and smell her! The 727 was my favorite as a kid, and still is. This one started off life with American in 1976 and still going strong. At RDU, 1/22/18.
