Boeing 727, dressed in the rich blue and grey of one of United Airlines' most recognizable liveries. N7262U flew the friendly skies exclusively for United from 1978 until retirement in 2001. Rescued from scrapping in 2021 it has been given a new purpose as part of the PlaneTags collection.
As Boeing’s only trijet, the 727 is a three engine, narrow-body airliner designed to fly short to medium routes into smaller, regional airports. Designed to minimize dependence on airport infrastructure, the 727 could:
Land on short runways
Start engines with an APU, cutting the hose from a start cart.
Load passengers via its rear staircase, eliminating the need for a boarding ramp or stair truck
-Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
-Unique - each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.
-Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card.
-Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
Please Note: Colors Of Tag Vary
