Two 727 airframes sit forlornly at Denver International Airport.  The one in foreground still wears some of its original FedEx livery.  For 35 years, Boeing 727 aircraft were a reliable workhorse for the world’s largest express transportation company.  The other 727 was retired from United Airlines in 2001 and then donated to the Denver International Airport where it is used as a ground trainer.  First flown in 1963, the 727 was the only Boeing trijet to enter commercial production. The last commercial passenger flight of the type was in January 2019.  Fuji X-E2s w/18-135mm.
