fantom,

I don't think I was but maybe my recall isn't accurate. I can't (without digging into my buried 727 manuals in the storage shed) say with 101% certainty that the inherited NE -295s had -7s...

aterpster,

If you flew with the -7 engines they were no bargain. We had the -15s on the -200s IIRC. It was an improvement over the NE -200s which had the -7s.

Apparently there's more to the...

I assumed they'd all do it in-house once the process was set up and understood by the airline's HR cubicle droids. Isn't it just shooting fish in a barrel after that ?

tdracer,

There were so many 727s built it's hard to keep them all straight. I wouldn't doubt your recollection at all.

aterpster,

What didn't you like about the airplane ? Other than having to put your coffee cup on the floor.

The -100s had the oval intake while the -200s were round. I can't remember (if I ever knew) why the difference. They both had JT8Ds of various dash numbers.

Now that you mention it, I do have a vague recall of something in our manuals about the #2 engine, the possibility of surge and x-winds on T/O. I think it was to spool it up with the...

I think they were an option vs standard equipment so they show up sporadically in fleets. We got a couple of -100s from the Northeast merger and they had NLG brakes, IIRC. And you had to get on the...

You'll certainly get a range of opinion, but I didn't find the airplane particularly difficult to land consistently. Those with an affinity for flap 40 landings often made life more difficult...
