Title: Boeing 727

The Boeing 727 was Boeing’s first and only tri-jet and was developed specifically for shorter flight lengths from smaller airports. It first flew in 1963 and entered service in 1964. It was a very successful aircraft and 1,832 examples were built over a twenty year period between 1964 and 1984.

Noise and fuel economy reasons have lead to the aircraft’s retirement from scheduled passenger service and only a few freighters and private aircraft remain. A few examples have been used by military air arms over the years, including by the USAF as the C-22 and the RNZAF.

This title contains two airline produced flight manuals for the Boeing 727 and one manufacturer’s descriptive brochure. The files have been scanned from the original documents and retain any colour pages unless otherwise stated.
