Found myself curiously cruising controller.com. As I am going to win the next California lottery drawing, I figured I should start shopping for a private aircraft now.

I saw this beauty while it was at LAX recently:

As luck would have it, this bird is for sale. I would prefer a fractional ownership, as I am not sure I can handle all of it myself. Any takers?

707 For Sale

Thought I'd ask.

Ah, asking price is USD 9,500,000.00.

Brochure Here

Edited to add brochure.

Count me in for 10, as well. Now between myself and DLKAPA, we're only 949,998 people short!


We can agree to disagree.

If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

She's got the upgraded avionics kit? Count me in for 50!

Seriously, though, it sounds like the price may be a little steep, but if someone with a pocketfull of expendable cash can keep another beauty in the air, I would implore them to do so.

How old is the bird? Looks in fairly good shape. I always wanted a real plane.

Oh well, just a few more years.

Hi !!

It's a former LH -320C...with new nacells to make the JT3Ds hushkitted and comply with chapter III.

She is in extraordinarily good condition, has it's own apu in the forward lower lobe...and a beautyful interior!!!

Doesn't eBay have a 707 designed to be a house much cheaper? Not flyable, obviously though

From the brochure:

An aircraft C check was completed in August, 2004.
The next Aircraft D check comes due in 2008.

Which is about 54 US Dollars! (AND, 16 cents for those keeping score!)

The exchange rate for the euro should be the other way. A strong euro and weak dollar would make 1000 euros worth about 1,288.54 dollars figuring today's exchange rate of 1 dollar = 77.6 euro cents and 1 euro = 1.28 dollars.

I was on the fence about this until I saw it had a Sony Betamax player - then I knew I wanted in on this deal!

Here in previous colors, Lufthansa's D-ABUF.

http://www.707fan.de/Spotterseiten/B70702/D-ABUF/d-abuf.html

Isn't 9.5 million a bit stiff - with fuel at $1.40 US per gallon - for an aircraft produced in 1965 that has seen commercial service?

For that sort of money I would buy a 737 and then charter it out for business charter to supplement the running costs and create the tax deduction


Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....
25 Nwafflyer : OK, what are runway requirements? If a 707 can land on short, i.e., MYR, MGM type runways, I'm in -- and for a reasonable price too, i.e., several tho
26 777WT : Don't forget about rising Jet-A fuel costs..., that's gonna be a factor too. 707 would be a guzzler.
27 Eddiela : My God! That is one beautiful aircraft. It's nice to dream isn't it?
28 Maitner777 : Let see, at 9.5 million dollars for the plane... If you had 365 buyers each getting one day per year, it would cost each of them $26,027.40. Not that
29 Simong : Only if it comes with a 6'5' Captain who wishes to serve my every desire ! LOL
