Where Can I Fly B707?

Wed Oct 17, 2001 9:48 pm

Does anyone know where and how I can fly a Boeing 707 or 720? I would be most grateful for any ideas or suggestions.

Best regards David

Last passenger scheduled 707 operation was Niarobi - Sharjah by African Express, changed to a 727-200 last year. There's not really any serious opportunities now, unless you can bum a ride on a freighter.

There was a 707 landed in Southend, UK last night with passengers on board. Unfortunately, they have all been arrested and the aircraft impounded on account of the six suitcases of drugs that were thrown out of it just after it landed!

Inter-Air of South Africa flies to Mauritius with it (maybe stopped last year)
Saha Air of Iran does domestic flights with it.
Romavia and JARO fly passenger charters, same does LADE of Argentina, sometimes IT charters from Buenos Aires to a sea resort. Bin Mahfooz flies charters (mostly hadj) with a few.
This is about it, I'm afraid.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

John Travolta owns one, so maybe if you became a Scientologist, spent all your money on the "religion", and progressed to high enough a level he'd give you a ride.

And Scientology is probably tracking my IP address now to send a carload of goons and lawyers after me...
