B720 Aircraft Status - Survey

I am interested to know which B720 airframes survive today. I beleive that the only one flying is an engine testbed for Pratt & Whitney, C-FETB. I have listed all possible B720 aircraft that may still be in existence (I'm not counting simulators, cockpit sections etc). If anyone can verify the present condition or status of any of the following aircraft I would be most grateful. It is likely that some of these may have been scrapped since their last sighting but any confirmation would be most welcome.

No, that must be an ex Dominicana 707, HI-442CT.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

If that is the case, it is pretty safe to assume the B720 has been broken up. I could not see any other 707/720 when I was there.

Was noted by me on an e-mail list... Short log: NBO hangars 11-13OCT06

(5Y-BBX) 707 Kenya Airways (old cols, no wings/tail fin, cabin trainer)

Reg not displayed but configuration as I noted suggests its the same a/c even though I recorded it as a 707!!!
