What you are seeing is a FedEx Aviation Services modification to the 727
to make it copliant with Stage 3 noise regulations soon to ake effect.
FedEx is marketing this conversion kit to any airline who wouldlike to
keep their 727's flying after the noise regulations take effect.

A result of the modification is a slightly larger intake on the Number 2
(tail) engine.
