SEATTLE (AP) - The Museum of Flight expects to receive a recently restored Boeing 727 prototype on Wednesday after its final flight from Paine Field in Everett.

The plane is scheduled to take its first flight in 25 years, as long as the weather is favorable.

The flight from Paine Field to Boeing Field is expected to take less than 15 minutes.

Upon landing, the 727 will taxi directly into the Museum’s parking area, where the engines will be shut down for the last time.

After welcoming ceremonies, the plane will be open to museum visitors.

The welcoming ceremony is scheduled to include dozens of retired Boeing and United Airlines employees.
