I thought 707s, 727s and 737s had the same section 41. I recently fond out that a 707 section 41 is deeper and taller than the ones on a 727s or 737s. I always thought the 707 looked taller than 727s and 737s head on , and when I learned this, it hit me why. I was wondering how much more height is in a 707 section 41?
I don't know but I'm 6'3" and when I climb in the front pit of 707 I have considerably more headroom than I do in a 737 or 727.
My belief is that any structural commonality in section 41, if there is any, is in the cab structure above floor level. Below floor level is certainly different with different E&E and nose landing gear bays.
