AFAIK, N707JT, the 707-138 belonging to John Travolta is the only one in active service in the US. I know Pratt-Whitney of Canada has 2 720s still being used as testbeds. This info just from my memory only. Regards.

Hmmm....can't recall where the aircraft is based, however I've seen it at LAX at times. I wanted say it's based in Van Nuys, Hollywood-Burbank or Santa Monica. but none of those airports sound right. Sorry, can't help you there Akjetblue. Regards.

His 707 is based at his house. There is a thread about it a month or so back. He lives in one of those private air strip communities. Has a taxiway right up to a "driveway for airplanes" It is the dream house of just about everybody on a.net

Jeff...they are called KC135's and some of the major airports (PHX, ANC and SWF off the top of my head) have em (ANG). I think there are some other's, but I dont recall the name.

The KC135 has a different airframe to the B707.

USAF designations for actual 707s include:

VC-137 (used as Air Force One until replaced by B747/VC-25), I think the veep usually uses one these days if any are still in service

E-3 Sentry (AWACS)

EC-18 Range Instrumentation & cruise missle control (originally exAA 707-320Bs, much reworked of course)

While USN designation is E-6 Mercury (submarine comms & airborne command post)

Honeywell's N720H is a actually a Boeing 720 ( I know the dual emergency exits over the wing). But I spoke with the pilot at length while he was here last week for the 100th Flight Anny. He even said it's most time to put her to bed cuz parfts are next to impossible to obtain. They are looking at getting a 757 to replace her.

But also the LOWA-owned 707 N882L was here about two months ago.

BN747

There is a book I have written about the 720 and that publication stated that there are only four 720s left flying. Two with Pratt in Canada. The name of the book is "Boeing 720."

Let me reword my previous post, the book I have was written about the 720. I did not write the book. You would think a person that works in Communications would know how to properly form a sentence!!!

720 wise, the one in Phoenix with Honeywell plus N720JR, a private one that mainly is based overseas. I know one of the Pratts is still in service, but both?
C-FETB is one...
