Interesting!

Does anyone know what engine modification that is ?
It doesn't look to be the same as N88ZL ?
How about certification for flights outside Iran ?

No, it was delivered new to the Iranian Air Force in 1976.

You are quite correct....
I was going by the Boeing Customer code (70) provided in the photo link...
Also the c/n in the link is wrong too...
1000 apologies

Pretty sure they have a 747 or two on long term lease from BGW

Why would they add a hush kit on a military craft unless it flies outside the country? I would imagine that it doesn't fly overseas much.

Hasn't the Iranian President flown this B-707 to JFK a few times to go to the UN? I know other times he takes a B-747.

Yes he has, Boom. Last I saw him in the 707 was May 2010, for meetings at the UN. They usually bring the 747SP during UN Week in September.

What's the point of hushkits? Military and VIP planes are exempt from noise regulations anyway.
