B707: don't believe so.

DC-8: some AMC military charters

BAC 1-11: charters in the UK

Viscount: don't think so

CVR 440: no

You might find these types in "third world" countries.


Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Convair 580 is used by an airline called Nolinor in Canada. Mainly prisoner movements across Canada, and chartered flights.

I saw a Viscount in Flight International, it is being used in the southern half of Africa somewhere.

Air Chathams operates scheduled Convair 580 service from the Chatham Islands, 800km east of NZ, to Wellington and Christchurch. They fly about 5 times a week.

Wasn't there an "around-the-world" tour in the 1990's with two fully pax equipped DC-8-62s from MGM Grand Air? If I recall, there was a complete story with pics in an issue of Airliners Magaizine. I'll have to dig that issue up to find the details. . .but it was a very interesting DC-8 extravaganza to say the least.
