I love South African Airways 707's, I've even flown in a couple of them. A classic livary for a classic plane.

I agree the Iraqi Airways 707s looked the best.

I am a big fan of the Continental Golden Jet. Made the 707 look real special.

I guess Iraqi Airways is a trend setter in the swoopy lines style that has recently become popular!

You just couldn't beat a 707 in BOAC colours. Nor a VC-10 for that matter.

I love the Boeing 707, which (like the VC-10) looked good in just about any scheme. That said, however, my two favorites are:

Does the 707 ever look bad? I will limit myself to those I remeber seeing in person, otherwise I would be writing until tomorrow. I saw American, Northwest, Pan Am, Trans World, and Western on regular service to SEA, and of those I liked Western's big red W on the front of the aircraft the best.

However, there were some rare visitors that I remeber even more fondly. The most unusual was a freighter in the colors of Golden Horn, but opreated with US registration N234FA.

But the one that I saw that I thought looked best was a Saudia 707 that visited in 1979.

I've never flown on a 707, but at one stage Varig had to ground it's DC-10's and used their 707's instead on the GIG-LHR route.
That was shortly before I was due to return home from Brazil. Unfortuantley, they got all their DC-10's repaired in time for my flight.

I also like the BOAC 707's and Pan Am's.

When you mention 707's. Pan Am seem to be the first airline that come to mind.
