Quoting RCoulter (Reply 8):
Yes it can, it has the runway length and width, heck a KC-135 was here for the races. I think the problem would be parking and privacy.
How about the fuel availability, and the ground cart(s) needed to start a 707?
When I worked at a small airport in the Southwest about 15 years ago, we once handled a 727. They ran our Jet-A tanks at the fuel farm dry when we had to gas them up for the trip out, not to mention that the only way they could get around the airport was to backtaxi the runways (not enough clearance on the taxiways) . Re-fueling them was fun, as our Jet-A truck only held 1,100 gallons...(6,600 lbs. per truckoad ).

There's was recently another Qantas 707 flying across the United States on its way to a Museum in Australia. The aircraft met up with John and his aircraft in Orlando last December. John has the only Qantas 707 still flying in the United states. There's photos of both aircraft together at:
