Yes it would be cool but one thing would prevent the 707 from doing so. There are too many more efficient, more pax carrying planes which outsmart the ol' 707 in dynamics and structural design.

Excuse me, but i am not interested in the aviation industry for a long time now, but why is Pan Am stopped mid 90's? Okay, bankrupt. But wasn't it a very large airliner? The only pictures i know from my early days (on series here in Holland) from planes was an Pan Am 727 or 747.
Is there a story about this on the net? (or just tell me
Where does all the planes went to?

There are many books available with the details, and you might check this website:
