Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

A very pretty Boeing 727-100 at Van Nuys, registered in Bermuda.

Supposedly, it was originally delivered to Pan Am and used in their West German service to Berlin.

I have a soft spot for the 72'. A brand-new AA -100 was the first airplane that I ever rode in. When I was in college, my flights to and from school were on 727s.

(Nanny Bloomberg has a house in Bermuda, but I doubt if he's classy enough to own a 727.)

Were they still using the rear door/stairs when you flew on it?

They never needed to, they had either stairs or, later on jet-bridges.
