Boeing 727

 

Many airlines had 727s in their fleets for a long period using these popular planes on short and medium range segments. When production was terminated in 1984 a total of 1832 aircraft had been built.

The modelplane has good flying characteristics. Looking elegant on ground as in flight this three-engine plane can easily be powered by a single turbine. The all-moving tailplane gives good pitch control .
