BOEING 727-200 (N216WE)
Transauto (TSU) 216 smokin’ on arrival on 30 Jun 2020. This classic Boeing 727-2S2F, N216WE, has been seen quite a bit at KTOL.
Excellent catch Ed - nicely backlit.
Loud bugger. We're under its departure route out of KPTK. Kalitta to the south and these guys to the north. Both seen a lot these days. Happy to see KPTK getting used.
This one looks like it was re-engined with the bigger and quieter (but still loud) JT8-200 in the #1 and #3 positions. The nacelle looks noticeably bigger than the original design. (#2 would still be the original very loud JT8 because the -200 won’t fit.)
Thank you. The sun was just right. I love the classic Boeings!
Sweet catch! Love the B727!
