> Can anyone describe to me what the 727 APU installation actually is?

	The APU is in the main gear bay, on the centerline, behind the
rear spar.  The APU is actually situated in a hole in the fuselage keel
beam.  Inlet air comes from the gear bay (I believe the gear must be
down to run the APU) and exhausts through a exit in the right hand upper
wing skin.
