This is from Chile- an Israeli modified (Phalcon) AEW with lower capes than our E-3 but a full 360degree range Radar

Did that get hit in the nose by an Airbus?

Why did they use the beautiful 707 for this stunt?

Actually, I think the 747-SP is a pretty ugly plane too.

Agreed. I don't like the look of this 707 variant. Everything looks fine except the design of the nose, which is just weird.

Ptica2000: Is that Nimrod thing based on the Comet?

Brons,

That's a very sharp eye you have. Nimrod is to Comet what Orion is to the lockeed Electra, Boeing E-3 J-STARS is to the 707, KC-10 is to DC-10 etc...

Cheers

That Nimrod photo is of the long defunct/cancelled AEW Nimrod tho.
The in-service one doesn't have large nose/tail bulges.
I am not sure what the Mk.4 (I think) Nimrod will look like. It'll have new R-R/BMW engines. Perhaps the BAe web site has a drawing.....

That is a really ugly plane. I have seen the Oscar-Mayer Weinermobile in person about 6 years ago. That's ugly too.
Have fun.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
