Copied from Wikipedia. The hijacked jet was a 727-100. N467US. Ended up flying from Nellis to TTR during the F-117 program.

In 1978, the hijacked 727-100 aircraft was sold by Northwest Orient to Piedmont Airlines, where it was re-registered N838N and continued in domestic carrier service.[failed verification][264] In 1984, it was purchased by the charter company Key Airlines, re-registered N29KA, and incorporated into the Air Force's civilian charter fleet that shuttled workers between Nellis Air Force Base and the Tonopah Test Range during the F-117 Nighthawk development program.[265] In 1996, the aircraft was scrapped for parts in a Memphis boneyard.[80]
