Daddad525:

There aren't many around. The reason is that USAF bought them all up, to either convert them to E-6s and E-8s or use them as spares for the C-135/C-137/E-3/E-6/E-8 series.

The E-6s were all new builds, to include the last 707 airframe manufactured.

Spain has four flying as transports, tankers or ELINT platforms. They use to have VIP duty until they bought 2 A310s.

I think the IADF flies some out of TLV for the Israeli government, and there are some that fly for Omega Air out of Manston, England

You will see some derelict/broken up airframes at BEY from MEA and TMA, and I think Royal Jordanian has just stored its 707s.

Air Zimbabwe still has a few flying, along with Lybian Arab and, I think, TAG Angola (not too sure about this one). African boneyards will have some, and also try the US boneyards such as Mojave, Victorville, Goodyear, Marana, Tuscon and Opa Locka.

The Argentine Military runs a civil passenger service to places under served, or not served by AR and other carriers. They fly 707s on the routes, and offer good prices to take you to some really cool places

Actually if anybody from Reims has any update on her condition, that would be great.

There is a very derelict Nigerian frame at Dublin (I think its still there). Also, try Stansted or Southend. I think one was impounded there. It might be a Koda Air Cargo machine. There may also be an ex Saudi airframe there as well.

The Israeli Air Force has quite a few, used for refuelling, and transport missions.

Didn't the Israeli Air Force still have a 707 with the JT-3C engines? I remember seeing a picture of it somewhere on a.net. I would love to hear that.

Run a photo search for the 2000 dates. You'll find quite a lot of interesting pix.

There were a lot of 707's built and there are still a lot of them around.Not in the western world but especially Africa where it has been the aircraft of choice for long haul cargo for years.

The RAAF had 5 of which 4 were converted to tanker-transports. I believe the remaining one, which was used for general and VIP transport has since been retired when the BBJs and Challengers entered service. The RAAF are also looking for new tankers (Airbus MRTT and KC-767 are main contenders).

Check out this month's or last month's Airliner World or Airliners magazine can't remember which lol sorry.. for a list of current 707 operators and the very small number, (in some cases only 1) that each operator still has left. It doesn't say how many are still in active service, so the number might be even less.

Saha Air, Azza Air Transport, Spirit of Africa, Koda Air, Johnson Air, Wimbi Dira Airlines, First International Airlines, LADE (airline operated by the Argentinian AF), Royal Jordanian, Lybian Arab (used as VIP transport), Skymaster and BETA.

Those are about the only civilian 707 operators left and maybe one or two more that I can't remember that were on the list. The rest were private, VIP, and military aircraft.

Thanks for your postings.

Where do you go to see the stored aircraft. I have been to MHV and MAR many years ago with a completely fed up fiance.

Any ideas?

You still go to MHV, MZJ (Pinal Airpark in Marana's real code), and VCV. Also, Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson, if they let you.
