FedEx Express Donates Boeing 727-200F to College

A Boeing 727-200F aircraft from FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., made its final descent March 28 onto the runway at the Williamsport Regional Airport. Celebration of the landing and tremendously generous donation to Penn College took place at the Lumley Aviation Center. “As we retire this 727 from our fleet, we are proud to give back to the aviation community,” said David Sutton, managing director of Aircraft Acquisition and Sales for FedEx. “The donation of this aircraft by FedEx is just one example of the many ways we support educational endeavors, reflecting the community spirit shared by all FedEx employees in the communities where we live and work.”
