MTSU Boeing 727-025C FAA# N117FE (formerly N8152G)

Alright. This was originally an Eastern Airlines commercial jet with the FAA # N8152G. It then became a FedEx freighter with the FAA # N117FE. It was then donated to the Middle Tennessee State University's Aviation and Aerospace Department after a very lengthy stint with FedEx. Here it sits at Murfreesboro Airport repainted to reflect the schools livery. This is a nice plane that they maintain quite well for its age. It is no longer in service, but is kept air worthy as part of the study courses.

*This plane was involved in an minor accident involving it hitting a stand of trees while landing in Houston, TX back in December of 1974. It was ruled pilot error and returned to service after repairs.*
