          I remember I used to get tired of flying it because I used to fly on it so much. I sure do miss it now though. I remember my last flight on it coming from miami to atlanta on American Airlines.

              I guess I'm lucky. Most of my flights have been on 722/732/DC10s.

              On UA 727s I have gone:

              I flew the 727 somewhere between 10-15 times. It was the first aircraft in Uniteds new(now old) gray colors I had flown on.

                    Even though I am only 15, I have had the great luck of flying on the -80 and a 727, and it was pure luck and circumstance for both. I flew the 727 SEA-ATL on DL back in 99 (I think). We even had an aborted landing in the dark because of a windshier warning. It was a great thrill to get a flight on such a classic.

                    Pop quiz: Which US president said, "Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade, and much of his nation's wealth, not on providing for the Iraqi people, but on developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them."
                    George W. Bush is not correct. It was Bill Clinton in his 1998 State of the Union speech. HMMMMMMMMM.

                      When I was a wee lad I flew Halifax Tampa then to antigua on a AC727. Comming back was a AA 727 from Antigua to Orlando, then Tampa YHZ on a AC727. Many many years ago.

                            The only 727 flight I ever remember was when WN had a few back in the '80s. I think we went HOU-LBB. How many people here can say they've been in a 727 with Southwest?

                              Copied from the wrong topic I posted in:
                              Only flown on the 722 once, on a flight which turned into my worst landing experience ever, sometime during the 90's, MGM-ATL, landing on 27L in a major crosswind, allowing me (on the left side) to see the end of 27R, and then the left wingtip almost hitting the concrete. In end everything turned out fine, but the pilot chose not to open the cockpit door while the pax were still deplaning.
