Default Cargojet 727

Found a different location to shoot aircraft coming into land in the afternoon hours. Was actually running errands and came across a parking lot which seemed ideal. I returned to the spot and caught this old "3 holer" in-bound for Rwy 36R. I think the only things missing are the usual trails of smoke that emanate from the 727's engines

Default One tired old workhorse.

Used and abused but still putting in a day's work.

Not much of an ad for FedEx or Boeing.

Why not, It is still flying 30 years after delivery (orginally to Air Canada in May 1980). It may not still be flying passengers, it is fulfilling it's new duties very very well. All it needs is a new paint job which it will get at it's next heavy maintenance check.

I used my Minolta 100-300mm APO at maximum focal length for both shots. The area where I took these photos allows one to be as close as sixty feet to the subject. These two were taken from much further off to one side. It's quite a rush to position yourself on the localizer when a 777 passes overhead and then the wingtip vorteces converge.
