I was wondering where the first jets of big airlines now are located. For example QF first jet (707) is now sitting out at Longreach in a proper museum. What about other airlines?

TN's first 727-76 VH-TJA MSN/LN 18471/72 Was delivered to TN brand new 28 September 1964 (I suppose thats inaccurate somehow because TN and AN's first 727's were delivered on the same day). Retired from TN Service February 1976 Went to to fly with Air Florida and CO and was parted out around 1991 at Mojave.

Two odd coincidences for Pan Am:

  • N708PA, the first 707 off the line (but maybe not the first delivered to PA), was destroyed in a crash on the island of Montserrat:

    N708PA, the third 707 off the line had been destroyed a few years earlier:

  • N739PA, while not PA's first, WAS the first to complete a revenue flight, flying JFK-LHR. Barely seven years later this plane was destroyed at Tenerife:

    United, however, I believe donated its original 727-100 to the Boeing museum - can anyone confirm this?

    Assume the third 707 off the line should read N709PA. It was the first of PA's six original 707-121s delivered, followed by line numbers 4, 5, 6 (N710/711/712PA). Line number 1 (N708PA) was next followed by line number 2 (N707PA). All six were delivered between August and December 1958.

    AC's first jet (still TCA then) was the DC-8-41 below delivered February 1960. It went to Air Ceylon sometime in the mid-1970s and was later converted to a freighter and operated for Carglolux and a couple of other carriers. It was scrapped in 1981.

    Well, here's a list of what I know:
    N102DA, DL 762= DL Museum, Atlanta
    N3304L, DL DC-9= Destroyed in Mexico, 1990s

    Actually, N739PA was destroyed over Lockerbie in 1988. N736PA was destroyed at Tenerife in '77.
    N801E, DL DC-8-11= Somewhere in South America, I think.

    was delivered on April 10, 1959 and made it's first revenue flight Copenhagen - Beirut on April 26, 1959, just over 49 years ago, and according to the information given on this site:
    http://www.airliners.net/aircraft-data/stats.main?id=372
    must therefore have beaten Air France's revenue service by more than two weeks.  bigthumbsup 

    This aircraft is now on display at the Norwegian Technical Museum in Oslo.
