The Jet Age (1958 - Today)

Boeing 727 Engines

The 727 Series 200 had three Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofan engines and could carry as many passengers—189—as the 707. It was the first Boeing aircraft with triple-slotted flaps, completely powered controls, self-contained aft-mounted stairs, and an auxiliary power unit to replace ground starting equipment.
