Found this on eBay - a nice nose section from an American Airlines Boeing 707. Not sure whether it's a -123 or -323; in any case it is the older (1960s) style cockpit. I doubt many of us have the money or room for this unique artifact, but the pictures are worth checking out:

Very interesting. The seller says it weighs 6000 lbs. Does that seem right? I cant imagine that thing weighing more than a Chevrolet Suburban.
Another thing, the seller doesn't explain why the nose paint doesn't match. Most likely a spare from another ship but curious what livery that nose is from.
And lastly, isn't the Reg# supposed to be labeled on the panel or radio stack? Can anyone ID the airplane?

This is a great find!
It appears that the nose cone is on upside down.

It is impossible to put the radome(nose cone) upside down. The top of the radome is flatter and the bottom has more of a curved surface. Also the screw holes will not line up. Since this cockpit section came from a 707 that the Air Force used for parts I'm willing to bet the radome came from another airplane. Not an American 707.

That's what I was thinking. Do you think it really weighs 6000 lbs?

Maybe 2500 pounds but then again they did have alot of metal in the cockpit, where now we have composite.

Perhas I should have worded it better. Yes I know that is impossible but it gives the appearance of an upside down nose.

That sound about right. I can't imagine it being heavier that my "70 Torino.

Was that info in the description on ebay? Any way to ID the ship it's from?

I can tell it is out of KDMA because of the stenciled serial number on the back lower section of the cockpit. You can also see where the SprayLat. was around the cockpit windows. And also the Air Force was buying up all the 707's they could get there hands on in the late 70's and 80's for the Fins and pylons. And also my employer sold them this 707. But why would you want this, there is no throttle quad. It has been cut out of the airframe.

But then if your ate up on airplanes you would buy anything. Maybe I shoudl post my 767 data plate on ebay.
