There’s a Jet Provost inside RAF Linton-on-Ouse that I see quite a bit - I’ll take a picture (when a Warrant Officer isn’t watching haha) next time I’m there.

I remember seeing a Fedex 727 at JFK. I think it belongs to the Aviation High School.

A Boeing 707 near germany/netherlands

Saw Kalitta Air 747-200 at KMIA. Just find out there all retired now.

The 747-400 are the oldest I saw at KLAX back in 2008. Never saw an MD-11, or maybe I did but I didn’t remember.

There are two 727s at Denver International Airport that sit near concourse C. One of them only has one engine.

Probably a DC-8 or a 707.

Saw an amerijet 727 take off over my house yesterday, those engines made it sound like a rocket. Also saw a 707 couple weeks back.

My dad said he once flew on a 727 once and he sat towards the back. He said it was extremely loud and he had a little trouble hearing his brother.

My dad flew on a Finn Air md-11 many years ago. The first tri-jet that he had ever flown on.

N732S, a Sierra Pacific 737-200. Saw it at KMDT this summer.

F-86 at Airventure this July.
