is perhaps fitting that a Federal Express 727 - N124FE -
was used as the parts donor for the Number One airplane, now a museum
piece at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
FedEx flew the airplane for 28 years, during which time it was
re-engined with JT8D-217 engines on the side pod positions for
compliance with noise rules. Line number 1832 flew for FedEx,
spent some time in the desert at Victorville, and then moved on to her
new owners 20 Nov 2012, when it went to T2 Aviation in the
..... and subsequently modified to spray oil dispersal agent on oil spills and placed in world-wide service.
