I, too, love the old Pan American scheme. Actually, most schemes of the 1960s looked good on the 707; particularly noteworthy are:

Pan American
TWA (double globes)
Ethiopian (this scheme looks good on anything that flies)
Malaysia Singapore
BOAC
Air France
Donaldson International
Varig Brasil
Pakistan International
Air India

Unfortunately, most of these liveries were replaced with much less dignified ones in the 1970s.

My number one is BOAC - the old 707-420 with RR Conway turbofans certainly did look classy with the gold speedbird and lettering against the blue background. Close second is American Airlines' early Astrojet livery, with the orange lightning bolt. I have models of 707s with both liveries.

The 707s looked great in Qantas and TWA(both '60s and '70s c/s) colors! Other colors that went well on the 707 include:

Pan American
LanChile (original c/s during the '80s before the new current c/s.)
Ecuatoriana (Ecuador's national airline)
Ladeco (Chilean carrier)
BOAC

Without a doubt, Pan Am and BOAC, but I also liked the 707s in the early BA schemes.
