The website states:

"Technical Records well maintained and up dated."

Gee, does that make the price go up?

How weird!!!! Why didn't they post this on eBay?

I am want to purchase this:

Will they ferry the aircraft or will I have to go to Sudan and pick it up?

How much would shipping and handling be?

They don't give any financing options - I'll call the guy tomorrow.

They could have chosen a petter pic, at least for marketing purposes! Does anyone else feel this is a scam?

Oh My GOD!!! Are they certified to fly?

Maybe we can all chip in, buy the B707 and change it into A.net Livery and make it our First International Tour Airline!!! It will stop in all A.net cities and host seminars and more... waow.... I have one heck of an imagination

How much would a 707 cost these days?
I don't know why they didn't just go on eBay like Dr.DTW said? It would take evryones mind of the selling live8 tickets...

I've flown Sudan Airways before and believe it or not apart from the 24 hour delay the on board service is actually not too shabby at all.

But this is a new low for SD, it's a shame because their headquarters in KRT is quite an impressive building, if only they spent the money getting the airline operating correctly.

Wow, and I didn't think Allah even knew me.

For the B-707-300F, will they take a 2003 Ford F-150 in trade? With the F-150, they can continue their freight operations.  Wink

We are trying to send our 707 here in Sudan, the Hawaii of Africa, back to the fornocating satens in the land of the great infidel to witch it was unleashed upon the world with endless need for maintiance and hungry motors that blow hot winds of smoke and ash. Ahh yes.... An F-150 would carry many bags of government donated cheese to feed the goats! Lets do this, yes?

All that joke apart, 41,000 flying hours for a 1974 built aircraft isn't bad at all.

Better than many of NWS DC9s actually.  Wink

 rotfl  24 hour delay? I get pissed at an hour delay!  Smile Nothing like on time service to that critical meeting... For the service to still be good they had better have "sexy stews" and not f/a's.  duck 

Quoting Bohlman (Reply 14):

Sigh... I am jealous he can afford *multiple* aircraft. Sigh...

If I thought we could raise enough to buy the plane, ferry it to Europe and then the US *after* it gets its A.net livery, I'd do it! I doubt we could raise the cash for the paint job.  cry 

Quoting Capt.Fantastic (Reply 4):

Maybe that's what you call a 707 rebuilt from scrap parts!  bigthumbsup 
Ok, I'm in a smart ass mood...

Its not just catering ,even Maintenance , Public Relations and Tourism.

Best of all , look at the schedules , they only mention when a plane departs and arrives back at Khartoum, it does not mention when it reaches the destination .

I see a Sudan Airways 737 at CAI every time I'm there. The planes look legitimate, and relatively new/clean/well-painted. They have a somewhat respectable looking office in downtown Cairo as well. So they SEEM okay, from the outside at least. But this whole 'P'707 thing is pretty damn funny...

Sudan Airways it the national carrier of an extremely poor country. There isn't enought money for anything, including running a world-class international airline.

My guess is that the people who run Sudan Airways are the best and brightest of Sudan.

my guess would be that you're right, but not that the best and brightest of Sudan can't figure out something like "boeing", but rather that they're smart people just getting into a very technical, complicated, globalized, and foreign-language-dominated market.

What about Ethiopia. They are poorer though they have a good class airline
