I'm not sure of the difference either, but I shot one last year at JFK. Looks cool to me!

I believe Super 727's were/are 727's kit'd to meet and exceed Stage III. Servivensa used to fly their 727's to JFK with "Super 27" on the engines.

The Super 27 is developed from the B727 with more powerful Pratt and Whitney 217 engines. This allows the aircraft to climb faster and cover a greater distance than the basic 727. The Super 27 cruises at mach 0.8 and at 550mph it is the second fastest Boeing civilian aircraft behind the B747.

The super 27 is a reengined 727 that uses the bigger MD-80 engines. It produces more power but has a slower cruise speed. Much better on fuel.

One side note....the #2 engine is still the original 727 type. Hope this helps

Hey Mike - If I am not mistaken, I think I might have caught your friend's 727 at JFK last week.
