Boeing 727-100

I am rather suprised there isn’t a feature request for this…


The Boeing 727-100


A Bit About the Aircraft

The Boeing 727-100 is a commercial aircraft produced by Boeing. It is a short to medium haul aircraft capable of flying 2 250 nautical miles. Created with the input of many U.S. airlines, it was very clear it was going to have many units sold. Known for having 3 engines, and being nicknamed many names related to dinosaurs for it’s loud Pratt and Whitney JT8D, it became a staple in U.S regional flights.

Why I Want This in IF

This aircraft is not as common as it was before and I think it would be a great classic to have in the game, and it would bring some great liveries, and new flying opportunities to pilots all through Infinite Flight. I also think that because it has a short range, which is perfect for little hops in Europe and the U.S., and that it would pair perfectly with the DC-10 and other aircraft that could come to IF, it would make for some great Flash and Friday Night Flights. hint hint Misha hint hint

As a vintage airliner fan, it would really pleasant aircraft to fly. Feels like back to the Era when theres still many Tri-jet in operation :)

I would love to fly the 727 in IF. We have a lack of vintage airliners in this game, you have my vote!

I’m afraid I’m not up for this one, as it looks like it’s a pain to land, with only single gears, but it looks heavy, so while this looks cool, it’s a no from me due to landing😕

Its a awesome aircraft, don’t get me wrong, You just don’t see a lot, if any these days, and when a new aircraft comes out, that’s all that people will fly. So if we have 20 727’s landing at KLAX and a Southwest Heart Livery holding short for takeoff, it feels very unrealistic. I would love to see this plane added, but maybe on its own server… totally not hinting at a retro aircraft server, cough, cough. Those of us who try to be as realistic as possible I think will agree with me. I do love this aircraft though, please do not misunderstand what I just said.

KLAX is always unrealistic :)
Thanks for the read!
