Entire Boeing 7-7 Line In One Place In One Day

According to the HNL Rarebirds blog, HNL has the rare distinction of having one representative of each Boeing passenger jet type at the same airport on the same day. And maybe even at the same time - certainly within a few hours.

Wow! Any other airports able to make this claim? I know there was something like this awhile back at the Boeing factory for a special event (I can't for the life of me remember what), but this is not a planned event - just a matter of circumstance!

From the blog:

Today's line-up:
707: Omega Air Tanker
717: Hawaiian
727: Asia Pacific
737: Aloha Air Cargo, Continental, WestJet
747: Japan, China, Delta, and Kalitta
757: American, Omni, US Airways, United, Delta, and Continental
767: Hawaiian, United, American, Japan, Delta, Continental, and Qantas
777: ANA and United

The blog can be found here: http://hnlrarebirds.blogspot.com/

Thanks to blog contributor Blue Wave 707 for pointing this out. I remember seeing the Omega Tanker 707 but didn't think to put them altogether! If only we could have the 787 do a test flight here like they did for the 777 in Kona a few years back....

Wow. I know at least 6 of those 7 are here on a regular basis; I don't know how often Omega Air Tanker sends one of their planes here, but I know today is the second time in a week they've had a 707 here.

Is that because they are taking the Super Hornets down to Australia?

It wasn't the factory, it was KBFI, the day before the 787 rollout (7/07/07).

I did not even realize that any airline still flew the 707, but that is beside the point. That is so cool and amazing! I am sure that LAX has had that happen at least once, and probably JFK too. (I am not 100% sure that that happened, but I cannot see why it would not have, they are both large airports with a lot of flights in prime US cities.) SFO can probably be up there too because the first Qantas flight was SYD-SFO, but the 777 was not out yet.

I just had the thought that SYD because if one of their old 707s are around then it might be able to be all there, but I am not sure if SYD sees the 717 and 727.

SYD would have come close, in the days where Jetstar/Impulse had the 717 and AAE had the 727s. Mind you, I don't remember seeing a 757 of any carrier at SYD for a long time.

Australia is about to ban the 727 for noise.. But 727s have been flying there consistently. 717s I'm less certain about although they do have them in Australia. Who knows, it could be possible when John Travolta's 707 goes down to SYD but after August (IIRC) it will be impossible in Australia.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

I'd be willing to bet MIA has most, if not all, on the field frequently. Lots of older aircraft flying the Caribbean and South America. Per A.net database, a charter 707 was operating out of MIA as of this year, and I'm confident that every other Boeing model is represented down there frequently.

It would be really interesting to see every variant represented as well, i.e.

707-1xx
707-3xx
707-4xx
717
720
727-100
727-200


etc...

What about the 720? I mean, if you're going to count the 717 as a legitimate Boeing airplane, which it's not, then the 720 should be there too.


A few weeks ago I flew with a captain who has flown every (true) model of Boeing commercial jetliner that was or remains in service... 707, 720, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767 and 777. He started his career with National, I believe, in the mid-1970s.

There aren't many pilots left out there who can say that.

I think the Omega 707 was having a engine change yesterday. Don't forget the Hang KC-135R's. I know its not civil but I think it fell to the orignal 717 number. Kinda cool to see HNL having all those Boeing's

Isn't the 720 basically a 707 shrink?

Who was flying them to Australia and when? That seems interesting to me, it must have been an inter-Australia route because it wouldn't seem as though it had the range to fly int'l routes to Australia, but maybe it would be possible for it to fly to Papua New Guinea.

This is pretty cool. We could almost do this here at BOS... but I can't think of anyone who'd bring a B707.

Boeingmedia.com has it, but the high res one is only available to registered media types.

This is the best publicly available one I could find:

The Boeing Store also used to have a print, but they don't appear to be offering that through their online site. They may still have it at the physical stores.

Qantaslink has a dozen or so 717s in its fleet, but to my knowledge, none of them ever pass through SYD these days. They're mostly used on outback routes.

Back in the days when they were painted in JQ colours, SYD did see them meaning that if a rare 707 was passing through (did the RAAF 707s ever land at SYD??) the 757 would have been the only aircraft in the lineup that wouldn't have been on the ground in SYD. The only time I've ever flown on a 757 was a wetleased one from Monarch in the UK that was here during the pilot's dispute. QF/TAA and AN never flew the 757, nor can I think of any int'l cariers who have flown it into Australia.

SQ used to have some, but I can't find anywhere that shows them ever flying to Australia. PER would probably have been the most likely destination.

In the line up at BFI, the 720 was omitted since it's an off-shoot of the 707.

The 787 would not count because it has yet to be delivered to a customer, though one is in ANA colors.


Would be nice if they could replicate the line up at HNL!

but I know today is the second time in a week they've had a 707 here.

That was the same Omega Tanker here from last week. It aborted takeoff twice last Saturday due to a compressor stall in the #3 engine. Quite a loud pop! It then pulled off the runway and one of the tires locked up and started smoking. That pretty much grounded the plane.

Too bad there wasn't an opportunity to get all those Boeings together at HNL, would've been a cool photo op! Still isn't too late though!

Yow. Hope it isn't stuck here for too long (for Omega's sake.)
