Does anyone have the history of this B707 parked in the desert near Nablus? Which airline did it belong to? How long did it fly? How did it get here?

There was a thread about this 707 back in 2004:
Boeing 707 Wreck In Northern Israel (by Setjet Apr 18 2004 in Civil Aviation)

Seems to be an ex-AF and Israeli Airforce 707 (4X-JYK)

I checked that thread - but it describes the location as being near Gaza - and this location is far from Gaza

Funny - with the missing rudder it kinda resembles a 777. Well, maybe with some imagination and without my glasses.

Can you locate it on Google Earth - give us the coordinates. A lot of things like that have tags in GE with info.

The mounts it is resting upon look like what have been used in the past in attempts to convert an aircraft into a restaurant.

Edit - Need to read the referenced thread again

"http://www.aerotransport.org has B707-328 c/n 18246/269 as preserved in Elifelet as a restaurant. Elifelet is a village just of the Teberias - Kiryat Shmona road a bit south of Rosh Pina.

This frame was F-BHSS with Air France before it became 118/4X-JYK for the Israeli Air Force. It seems like Jan Mogren is right, the nosecone is probably not the original.

I have been driving that road on several occasions the last 1½ year (latest April 3 this year), and I never noticed any B707's there Actually I think todaReisinger could be right that this is the frame that was move to a place near Nablus
