A reliable observer reported what looked like a B-727 with only two
engines at Detroit during the week of April 27. The top engine air
inlet had been replaced with a fairing, the tail cone had been modified,
The nacelles were larger than usual, and the landing gear looked 
somewhat different. The plane was in American Airlines colors. The
observer is familiar with DC9/MD80's. Does anyone know more about
such a plane?
