FYI: John Travolta's Plane

Hey guys - That's a 720, not a 707. I saw a pic of it on Brian's home page. Great pix, btw, Brian. :-) Cheers!

It is a 707-138 (the QANTAS ones were shorter).

It Is Actually A 707

It is an ex-Qantas 707. Qantas were the only customer for the "707SP", which is a short body 707 with -320 wings and engines. It looks like a 720 but is certainly not. Sorry.

OK. Got it. I didn't remember about QANTAS' planes. It sure does look like a 720, though, with that short fuselage! The second place I looked was the landing gear, because the 720 has smaller main gear wheels and tires than a 707. But they aren't very visible in that photo. >;-)
