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.
