You shouldn't see split-elevators on a 727 with hydraulics on. A MD80 is a different story though. This airplane does not have powered elevators but uses old-fashioned control tabs. What this means is that without airspeed the elevators, and ailerons for that matter, can flop around and go where ever they want. The MD90 does have fully-powered elevators but the ailerons are still control tabbed.
