Default Donated FedEx 727 Lands in Alaska

In Anchorage, Alaska a FedEx 727 successfully landed at Merrill Field Tuesday afternoon, weeks after plans to donate it to the University of Alaska Anchorage were announced. The three-engine jet made two flyovers of the Downtown area at 2 p.m. before circling in for an uneventful short-field landing on the field’s 4,000-foot runway
