Product description


The Boeing 727 was one of the best and most popular jetliners in history. Advanced, reliable and powerful it brought the safety and speed to isolated communities around the world and contributed to decrease the ticket prices for its high efficiency. This beautiful book by Schiffer at last describes in detail the 727 long and fascinating story, courtesy of Author Dan Dorseif. He is a captain in service with one of the major US airlines and had free access to the huge Boeing historical archive. Through interviews, beautiful images (more than 600!), drawings and the wonderful Hennings profiles, this story is brought to life till to the point that the reader can hear the thundering sound and sniff the JT8Ds smokes! Mr Dorseif interviewed many engineers and salesmen of Boeing that give details and facets of the trijet unknown to the public The chapters thoroughly described the technical details of the -100 and -200 versions, the service with the main airlines and the long way that started from the stillborn 727-300 to the 7N7 and then the real 757. Many stories connected with the liners are told too, like the dramatic 1975 Da Nang evacuation by a World jet, directly in the line of fire of the North Vietnamese artillery or the 1985 TWA plane hijacked in Rome. A final chapter on the modelling is also included, detailing how to reproduce a beautiful Alitalia 727-200 Advanced and two -100, in the old 60s American and United liveries. A must have for any aviation enthusiast. -- Marco De Montis, Google Books
