    UPS recently announced the accelerated retirement of it's 727s, 747-100s and 747-200s. Question: do these aircraft require 3 person flight crews?

    Is the plan to replace them with aircraft using 2 person flight crews?

    The older aircraft such as the 727 and 747(100/200) do require a 3-person flight crew: a captain, FO, and FE (Flight Engineer).

    The new aircraft are 2-person flight crews.
