There is a great photo taken through the cockpit window by the Flight Engineer of a B-707, inverted, doing a barrel roll on its maiden test flight. Anyone know where I can get a copy suitable for framing?

I'd appreciate the steer. Thanks.

The only thing I know is that there´s a book with this picture on the title. Check amazon or so to find out. Actually this picture was not taken out of a B707-window. Its the "Dash 80"-Prototype (somehow its the very first 707, yes, but its not designated so and its a smaller aircraft).

It was not on the maiden flight. They were performing for an airshow. Tex Johnson (sp?) was at the controls. It was not a planned, he just did it! He was told to never do it again. It was the Dash 80 and not the 707, and yes, there is a difference! I have never seen the picture taken by the second officer while it was doing it. I saw a video of it, and It was amazing!

the book that had a reference to it (but do not recall a picture) was 'the making of the 747'

would love to see a picture of that, though
