Although the Boeing 727 has been very successful, its service as a passenger aircraft has been relatively short lived. As a medium range aircraft it may have been too large for domestic routes and too small for international routes. However, they have a long history of service as cargo aircraft that continues today.

CP Air operated four B727-100’s from 1970 to 1977 and two -200’s from 1975 to 1984. We suggest that you visit an excellent site administed by former CP Air employees, cpair.blogspot.ca, for a more detailed history. tmb cf cpn 6
