Northwest Airlines Boeing 727-051  N461US        (c/n  18797)


                                  Commencing in the 1960s and for the next three decades, Northwest made tremendous use of that
                                  workhorse of the world's airlines, the Boeing 727.  They operated some forty of this short bodied
                                  version at various times.   Although received from Northwest, this image is clearly a manufacturer's
                                  print, taken over Mt. Ranier.   When the series 200s were delivered, many of the older -051s were
                                  sold off, this one going to Pacific Southwest Airlines as N973PS in 1977
