But burning on the tarmac is so pitiful. Better to light it off in flight and let it go in a final blaze o' glory.

Let the pilots for those final flight be the guys going on forced retirement but who don't want to - they don't play golf and hate their wives.

Which airline was this/how many 707s do they have? Any pictures of this plane anywhere? The tail looks a bit similar to Koda Air cargo.

Airports in Istambul must be one of the most interesting nowadays with Russian and even 707 traffic, wow

As a old 707 crew chief it hurts to see pictures of her in a death thro. At least it looks like there are some usable parts on the wings to keep other 707's in the air.


I would help you but it is not in the contract

spot on, wait til summer, then we get very interesting traffic, the other day we had a TU-204 come out here, the sound that thing makes is very very interesting.



The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!
