Hello everyone,
I know not to trust info from Wiki but it said that the last 707 (incl. tankers, etc) was delivered in 1994 or possibly '95. Is this true? I searched all over the place and I found that the last 70 was delivered in 91-93.

On the Boeing Commercial Airplanes site you can search for historical delivery information. Under products>orders and deliveries>standard reports>model you can see that the last 707 is shown as being delivered in 1994.

The last new 707 delivery was 73-1674 on 28 April 1994. It was an older airframe though, l/n 901 first flown in 21 July 1975, and used as demostrator/test model in the mean time.

The last 707 built was l/n 1012, ZH107 for the RAF, first flight 14 June 1991 and delivered on 12 May 1992.

We're talking about military variants in this case.

Would you also believe that a number of the U.S. Navy's E-6Bs have been retrofitted with 737NG-style cockpits in recent years as well?

Cool! Does anyone have photos? So what about the 707 in 94/95? The Boeing page states that 1010 707s were built up until '91. But there are 707s with ln1011/1012. Does anyone know which 707(s) were built in 94//95?

Thanks for all your input!

Interesting Boeing article on the 707, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the first production 707 on December 20, 1957.

Didn't you read my reply #3? The last built 707 was finished in May 1991.
The 1994 delivery was a 1970s airframe which was operated by Boeing since.

...though the last 707-320B rolled-off the line on February 4, 1975. The aircraft was ordered on the whim of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón upon his return from 18 years of exile in 1973, for use as his new Air Force One. He placed the order through state-owned AR, however, to conceal its expense, and in the end the aircraft was barely used for the role for which it had been designed. Wfu just two years ago and with less than 10,000 cycles and 20,000 hours total use!

That's right. It was a 707-320C (convertible) that was delivered to Biman Bangladesh airlines.

I don't know where it is now.

Correct and to add to that, the US Navy used a leased Lauda Air Boeing 737-600 to train the E6B pilots in. If I remember correctly, they were suppose to return this 736 back to Lauda Air.

I don't think that's correct. As far as I can tell, BG never took delivery of a new 707. Their newest was line number 761 built in 1968 which was previously operated by Kuwait Airways after originally being delivered to Pan Am.

The last civilian 707 produced was N707QT, a test aircraft equipped with CFM56 engines used to see the feasibility of building new 707s or reengining older 707s with CFM56s, similar to the DC-8 CFM56 reengining program. It was designated 707-700. The program never materialized on a civilian basis but it did lead to the USAF KC-135 reengining program.

Having done some research, the last 707 built for an airline was 5N-ANO, built in December 1977 for Nigeria Airways. This is it below:

I found this out by looking at production list tables here:

It was designated 707-700. The program never materialized on a civilian basis but it did lead to the USAF KC-135 reengining program.

It also led to CFM-56s being used on about 40 707 airframes built for military purposes, including the E-6Bs for the US Navy and E-3s for the UK, France and Saudi Arabia, also 8 KE-3 tanker versions for Saudi Arabia. Those 40 or so military 707s were the only ones factory-built with CFM-56s.

The 707 used for the test program was re-engined with JT3Ds and sold to the Moroccan government. They used it as a VIP aircraft for a few years. It then went to the Israel Air Force where it was converted to a tanker/surveillance aircraft. Assume it's still in service in Israel.
