The Boeing 727, a narrow-body trijet airliner produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, was developed in response to the growing demand for a smaller yet similar aircraft to its predecessor, the Boeing 707, optimized for shorter flights. Introduced in 1964, the 727 stands as Boeing’s sole trijet, featuring Pratt & Whitney Canada JT8D engines mounted on the rear fuselage, just below the distinctive T-tail. Designed for operation at smaller airports with limited ground facilities, the 727-100 was equipped with airstairs, a notable feature, and an innovative auxiliary power unit, enabling various internal systems to run from a ground power unit. The Boeing 727-100 achieved immense success, with large-scale purchases and continued service to the present day.
Red Box is delighted to offer an extensive range of ground power equipment for the Boeing 727-100, including tugs, ground power units, start power units, and more, meticulously tailored to meet the specific requirements of the aircraft.
