Is there any airline whose current livery is still the same as when it used to fly the 707? I can't think of any, but that doesn't mean a lot

But can you really use AA's picture nowadays? With the new paint scheme finally having been unveiled and used, isn't that livery now the new "current" livery?

Like 99% of American's fleet still has that livery, so yes, I'd say that still is American's livery.

Soren, Lufthansa never operated a B707 in the current livery. The aircraft you linked to was repainted after its retirement.

When active, their B707 aircraft were painted in one of these two liveries (or a hybrid of the two):

So Lufthansa does not count, I'm afraid.



Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

Not sure you can include Air France. Did'nt they change their livery just slightly a few years ago ? Broader stripes or something like that ?

One of the last was ET. They hadn't changed their livery for decades until they introduced their current livery around 2003.

Even going back to their early propeller days in the '50s and '60s, about the only significant change over the next 50+ years until 2003 was deleting the "EAL" from the tail.

Good question.

Korean Air
Air Zimbabwe
Biman Bangladesh ...loosely


It got me thinking about DC8s then......but excluding Freighters (as they tend to linger)

KLM
Iberia
Alitalia ....sort of

Royal Air Maroc's current livery is pretty similar to what appeared on its 707s:
