That is a 727-200. Not -100.
The ooooonly way to fly!
it is a Boeing 727-200
What gives it away from a 100 Steve?

Stephan Furtak, for me it's the two emergency escape windows over the wing???
The 100 variant had a mid-cabin galley, therefore the galley service door was mid-cabin on the right side, just forward of the wing. This has the Galley-service door up front. There are other ways to tell, but this is the easiest on the 727 when looking at the right side.
I have many hours as Captain on this WAL 727, ship 822. It's the screen saver on my iMac.

They had 4 flights a day out of Calgary Alberta CYYC in the 70's and early 80's.
Thanks for the Memories!
I worked for Western 55 years ago. My Favorite Airline job.
My father worked for Western Air Lines from May 1947 until March of 1986 in flight operations - dispatch. He loved the airline, I remember going to the company Christmas Party for years as a little kid. Also remember the day the Douglas M-2 was displayed at a special event just before it was given to the Smithsonian where it is now on display. For many years it was stored in one the the hangers.

I do not see any rear exit doors...I think it is a -100. Rear exit doors differentiate the -100 from a -200

Bringing back memories from quite a while ago!

Western only had -200s. The number 2 engine intake on the -200 is round and slightly elevated above the fuselage, the -100 intake is more oval shaped and the bottom of that intake becomes part of the fuselage. If is more obvious from straight on but you can actually see in this picture that there is a gap there. The 2 doors over the wing is a give away but the reason for that is the longer fuselage and the need for more exits because of the more passengers. I flew all three seats on this fleet and logged about 6,000 hours. Great plane - “check essential” will bring back memories for those that flew it— dan
love this. miss hand flying. rock solid stability going to minimum's

Boy, does this bring back memories.

Fondly remembering my one and only flight on Western. Hopped a 727 from LAX to FAT. Fastest pax load-on ever because they were going to close FAT as Air Force One (President Reagan) was inbound. Pilot came to the gate and said get on right now or we'll be here for another 7-8 hours. Never seen folks board so fast.
