 DL> You have got it backwards Karl - the 727 only flew with the GE 36
 DL> UDF, while the MD-80 flew with both the GE and the P&W/Allison
 DL> engines.  Rumor is that both airframes have now been scrapped.

The 727-100 UDF testbed aircraft was reportedly used as the crashed
aircraft for the movie "Hero".  A photo was printed in _Airliners_
magazine a while back.

The nature of the "crash site" setup shown in the photo was such that I am
confident that aircraft has not flown since.  (The fuselage was in
multiple pieces :)
