xThe Boeing 727 is a midsized, narrow-body three-engined jet aircraft built by Boeing from the early 1960s to 1984. It can carry 149 to 189 passengers and later models can fly up to 2,700 nautical miles (5,000 km) nonstop. Intended for short and medium-length flights, the 727 can use relatively short runways at smaller airports. It has three Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines below the T-tail. The 727 is Boeing’s only trijet aircraft.
