Remarks:Eastbound and down aboard one of the last flying passenger Boeing 727s in the USA. Several months after this LAS-OKC flight, Champion ceased all operations, marking the end of an era in jet travel. We miss you, mighty three-holer!
Remarks: The light load on today's Las Vegas-Oklahoma City flight gives us a chance to move around and explore the cabin of one of the last flying passenger 727s in North America. There are still visible reminders of this airframe's early days with Singapore Airlines, such as the oversized galleys (a reminder of the times when airlines provided real service). Surprisingly, this is the first cabin shot of a Champion Air 727 anywhere on the 'net!
Remarks: Shortly after departing Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, our vintage trijet is low, slow, and much like the wind, sweeping across the plains of Oklahoma. This is the first Champion 727 wing view on the internet, and I was happy to able to fly one of these relics before they're inevitably retired!
