	Be glad we'll still have them around to look at (and ride on) for a
number of years yet.  They're almost totally extinct in the rest of the

	I spent two weeks looking at airplanes in Hong Kong and Japan recently,
and saw exactly TWO 727s.  One was a DHL cargo bird at Hong Kong (never
moved), and the other was Continental Micronesia at Sendai, Japan.
