The Boeing 727 is a narrow-body airliner with three rear-mounted engines. It was manufactured from 1963 to 1984. It became the first commercial aircraft to sell more than 1000 airplanes. The single-aisle aircraft was intended for short and medium routes. The third engine made it possible for it to operate out of shorter runways at regional airports. TWA operated 61 727-200 aircraft. One distinctive feature of the aircraft is the built-in stairs under the rear of the aircraft. In 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked a 727 in 1971, collected $200,000 in ransom money and then bailed out, through the aft stairway, over the northwest United States. Neither Cooper nor any of the money were ever found.
