FedEx 727 Lands at Merrill Field [VIDEO]
The 727 FedEx airliner made it’s final descent today, just after 2pm, at Merrill Field in Anchorage – an airport generally used for smaller aircraft. After two approaches to gauge the landing, the plane dazzled onlookers (especially the ones not already aware of the scheduled landing) as it gently touched down in the heart of downtown Anchorage. It will now be used by University of Alaska students in the Aviation Technology Center as a hands on educational tool. And we think that’s fantastic.
