Braniff Boeing 727-200

This Braniff International Airways Boeing 727-200 is the first tri-jet in my collection. The -200 variant is the stretched version of the original. The aircraft, a successor to the 707 jet, has a T-tail configuration.

Braniff Airways was established in 1928, but became bankrupt in 1982. It is only American airline to operate the Concorde, thru a lease from British Airways and/or Air France.
