As of about a year ago, Royal had six 727s, all -200 Advanced models.
Two were built for CP Air, and one each for Singapore, Mexicana,
Sterling, and Ansett (Australia).  None of these seem likely to have
ordered anything as exotic as you describe, and tracing the registry
of these six aircraft turned up nothing notable either.

(Another post in this thread seems to indicate the ex-Mexicana one.)
