FedEx donated one of their Boeing B-727 aircraft to the Florida Air Museum. Its new purpose, “just in time delivery”, is to be a classroom and meeting space.

Postscript: reader dlberek (see the comments below) noted that not long after these images were taken the 727 was repainted in the scheme of Piedmont Airlines and the photo he referenced (http://www.airliners.net/photo/Piedmont-Airlines/Boeing-727-233-Adv(F)/2640251/&sid=64fee62be3d1f96c476b4f97d895ba66) also shows the aircraft is ready to served as a classroom and meeting space. Thanks for the heads up 🙂
