As some of you may know, we love planes. And that may be putting it lightly.
So you can imagine how enthralling it was to be invited to film the Museum of Flight’s restored Boeing 727 on its final flight at the beginning of this month. After 25 years of restoration work, the first Boeing 727 ever built took off from Paine Field in Everett and made a smooth, final landing at Seattle Flight Museum where it will become a permanent fixture.
N7001U spent its entire career flying for United airlines and racked up 64,495 flight hours and flew an estimated three million passengers until it retired in 1991.
