50 Years of Boeing 727

Postby alumtube » Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:03 am

This Saturday can celebrate the Boeing 727. It is then 50 year since it made its first flight.
Here is a nice little metal model made ( most likely ) by Pacific Miniatures. It measures 8" long.
It came from a person that family member worked for Boeing. Was told they gave these out to the employees during a ceremony. Has handwritten date of 2/9/63 on underside, day of its first flight.

it certainly was, until the 737 came into being. That one holds the record now
