This is the definitive 727 variant, and by far the most common one seen on the airways. 727-200s were offered in two models: the original 727-200, and the 727-200 Advanced, featuring a number of improvements, mostly internal Externally the hallmarks of the passenger 727-200 remained the same.
As compared to the 727-100, the 727-200 is 20 feet longer, at 153ft
2 inches. Wings, stabilizers, and nacelles are visually identical
to those on the 727-100. 727-200s also have a perfectly circular
center inlet, instead of the oval inlet used on the 727-100.
