      Am I hallucinating, or was there once a thread on Braniff's first 727-227s that were delivered in JellyBean colors? I have tried searching the forums, and am not finding it... Was looking for photos of those airplanes, specifically the right side.

      Many thanks!

      Check out the articles under the Civil Aviation forums titled "JB-era Memories".

      JB-Memories #6 and #13 cover the (3) 'Jellybean' 727-227's and the (2) ex-Allegheny 727-2B7 that were painted in 'JB' colors but there is only (1) known photo of N404BN (none of N405BN) which we used to have our Eric create a profile of. What we don't know is how the nose was painted. Did it get a Black Mask and Black Radome? John
