BMW Rolls-Royce is in discussions with a large Boeing 727-200 operator about its proposed BR700 re-engineing programme. Talks have also been held with an unnamed company to handle the integration on the airframe. The re-engineering would involve the replacement of the outboard engines with the BR715. Several solutions are being considered for the central engine, including hushkiting the JT8D, or replacing it with a R-R Tay or BMW R-R BR710.
