This had me wondering something.  Clearly, aircraft with long ranges (such as
the 767, 747, DC-10, etc., etc.) can be flown directly from the US to any
nation, so delivery is no more complicated than flying to the appropriate
country.  What about the shorter-range aircraft, like the 727 and 737?  How
do they get from the US to, say, the middle east?  Are their ranges just long
enough to make it from New York to London?
