NASA 515, the first 737 ever built is still in operation here at Langley.
It was recentely used for wind-shear detection research, the focus
of a recent article in Air&Space magazine.
There have been rumors that NASA may acquire a 757 from now defunct
Eastern Airlines.  I've heard that the cost/difficulty of maintaining the
aircraft is the factor behind this.
