Great Pic Colin. Thanks for sharing it. I never thought I'd miss seeing a 727 flying around, but I do. You got my vote for photo of the day!

A most EXCELLENT capture, Colin! Premier Q shot! My personal fave tri. I second your sentiment wholeheartedly; it is always a treat to see and click a B727. Congrats!
(And yesterday, I, too, got a treat ... a BAC111 in my viewfinder as it was on approach to NFL. Your pic here and the one I snapped yesterday are wonderful memory jogs for an old-timer like me; B727s and BAC111s were two of the three paxjets I photographed regularly as a kid back in the late 60s at KBUF. The third was UA's Caravelles.)
TYVM for sharing this snap. (Thumbs Up)

I notice two A-10's in the background, I assume Air Nat Gd. If the Air Force Brass pukes have their way, seeing an A-10 will be as rare as a 727. :-(

John, me to! Thanks!

Gary, Thank you very much for your comments! I agree my first memorable flight was on a NWA 727 from MSP-YYZ. I love the 727. In my top 5.

skyhawkrg, Those belong to the Idaho Air National Guard. 190th Skullbangers. We have fought to keep them a few more years.
