    PRINT: Northwest Orient Boeing 727-100/200 Red Tail/Thermometer Livery

    Northwest Orient Airlines Boeing 727-100/200 | N461US & N251US | First 727-100 and First 727-200 | Red Tail/Thermometer Livery

    Northwest Orient's first Boeing 727-100 (N461US) and first 727-200 (N251US) in the 1970s/80s "Thermometer/Red Tail" livery. Northwest's 727s were acquired as part of a large-scale investement in turbofans starting in 1961 with the orders for the Boeing 720B followed by the Boeing 707-320C in 1962. The 727s were the next to follow with the first 727-100 arriving in November 1964. The first 727-200 arrived in October 1968. Fifteen of Republic's eighteen 727-200s crossed over after the 1986 merger. At its peak with Northwest Orient, 92 727s were active in the fleet. The 727-100s were retired 1991-1992 and the 727-200s were retired in 2003. Some previews:

    The print has a white border making it suitable for framing and is done on a metallic heavyweight paper that gives the print a unique pearlscent gloss finish that makes the colors particularly vibrant.

    Print size is 16x20 inches. Cost is $40, shipping and handling for US addresses is free.

    Overseas/international buyers, I'll have to get you a shipping quote. I have recently started shipping the prints out flat. If you've ordered from me in the last 2-3 months, you got the prints sent to you flat. Paypal is preferred but you don't need to have a Paypal account. If you wish to pay by credit card, I can email you a Paypal invoice that you can pay via credit card.

    All inquiries, contact me either via FB or Buzz messaging or and we'll finalize payment details.
