Don't know if you count this or not but last time I checked the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team was flying around in one (except Kevin Brown who has to have his own plane) Maint is done by American Eagle and it has an AE sticker on the side of the engines.
So if that counts yes there is one in the US still

Saha Air of Iran still fly 707s on domestic scheduled services. They're the last scheduled passenger operator.

LA Dodgers don't have a 707, but there are a few in executive jet config, including John Travolta'a. There are also a few still in freight service, mainly in Africa, the Middle East and South America. Search the photo database - pictures of active 707s taken in 2003 will give you a clue as to who is still operating them.

What a sad commentary....a prestigious plane falling into the past...almost more tragic than the cease of Concord...not that I am sentimental or anything...

Sure...

Here we have a fleet of eight civilian 707s, with at least 4 flying. One with Skymaster and three with BETA Cargo. Skymaster has five 707s but not all are flying due low cargo traffic.

Skymaster has also two DC8-63s and TCB two DC8-50s (one flying) and ABSA had one -62 (also parked)

As you see, lots of coal burners action down in Brazil  Smile
