This Limited Edition Airskinz has been cut from the iconic Boeing 727-100, VP-CJN was first delivered as VH-TJF to Trans Australia Airlines in June 1970 and flew for 42 years as a workhorse of the sky ferrying business passengers and tourists across the world before being withdrawn from service in 2012 in the United Kingdom.
The first 727 rolled out Nov. 27, 1962, bearing a lemon-yellow and copper-brown color scheme similar to the livery of the Dash 80. However, by the time of its first flight, on Nov. 27, 1962, orders were still below the estimated break-even point of 200. To help spur sales, Boeing sent a 727 on a 76,000-mile tour of 26 countries.
Originally, Boeing planned to build 250 of the planes. However, they proved so popular (especially after the larger 727-200 model, which carried up to 189 passengers, was introduced in 1967) that a total of 1,832 were produced at the Renton, Wash., plant.
In September 1984, after a 22 year production run, the last of 1,832 727s was delivered (a 727-200F to Federal Express). The once “very risky” 727 had become one of the greatest selling commercial jets in history.

BOEING 727-100 AIRSKINZ
We are really pleased with our Airskin. Awesome idea, and a nice handwritten note inside. Thank you Airskinz. We will be back!
The white/gold tag is my 3rd piece of the fabulous Boeing 727-100 VP-CJN. I love the contrast between both colours, with the flakes in the gold gleaming in bright light! The white is lovely and glossy, with a subtle bend in the metal giving an interesting effect with the white paint. I keep having to remind myself that this is from an aircraft built in 1970 - and for Trans Australia Airlines (TAA) no less! This is another gorgeous tag from Airskinz, many thanks indeed!🙂👍
