BOEING 727-200 (N216WE) - So happy with this shot! During peak season at SDF, I noticed this 727 departed everyday around 4pm. I waited for a sunny day, and amongst the hundreds of UPS departures, got this 727 banking off of runway 17R in some stunning lighting!

Gorgeous shot! Yes, the light is amazing - "the golden hour" by the looks of it, about an hour before sunset, right? I'm so happy that some of these old beauties are still being used as freighters.

Well done / I'd give anything to see a 727 fly again.

Have a great weekend.

Although not a frequent flyer, I had the pleasure to fly in a -200 one at least once in my life with extinct Mexicana airlines. One of the finest airlines of its time.
Great shot buddy!!

Simply superb shot of the Old Lady. Spent some 24 years and 10,000 hours flying her around the Western Hemisphere.

Great old airplane. They have been around for many years. And extremely reliable aircraft.
