in 1973 Delta put the first of their series 200 Boeing 727s in
operation. The B&W shot
below was obtained from
Delta (although is probably a Boeing Aircraft photograph), but the
image above, taken by
Robert M. Campbell at Nashville, Tennessee Metropolitan Airport in

possessed a huge fleet
of these 727s (well over 100). They are all gone now, of course,
going to Indonesia's
Merpati Nusantara Airlines as PK-MBW, whilst N453DA went to People
Express Airlines in the
1980s becoming N512PE.
August 1972 Delta merged with Northeast Airlines
and, in so doing,
picked up more 727s,
in addition to that
company's DC-9s and Fairchild FH-227s.
