The final scheduled passenger service Boeing 727 flies for final time
Jan 14 2019
It was a historic flight, but one that ended in little fanfare or pomp.
The final scheduled passenger service on a Boeing 727 has taken place.
Iran Aseman Airlines' Flight EP851 between Zahedan and Tehran was operated by a 38-year-old Boeing 727-200 Advanced, reports The Points Guy.
Once the most widely sold commercial jet in history, the 727 is now mainly used for cargo and some military and private use.
The 727 run by Iran Aseman Airlines is the oldest aircraft in its fleet.
While the airline has made no direct comment on the last scheduled flight, journalist Babak Taghvaee did post a video on Twitter capturing the final flight.
