Back in about 1986 there was a 707 turned into a restaurant just off the cargo area of the Manila Intl Airport (MIA
) It was first a pan am pax plane, then bought and converted by Robert Vesco, the world famous con man. Elvis Presley bought it and it was reworked in Dallas to replace his old Marten , but he died before he could ever see it done. Somehow it ended up as a place called the "Club 707" It was permanently parked with a nice ramp in the rear that was covered in a canopy, and lit up like a Vegas Casino entrance. The interior of the plane was just too cool to describe! A sauna, master bedroom, a little wooden dance floor, but it had two dining areas that were big and comfortable. With the noise of the nearby runway, you could imagine what it must be like to be inflight and dine like this! Food was truly bad! Cooked in a stall in the parking lot, and hustled up to the plane! Mostly Filipino food.. I was back in Manila last year and was told the place closed, and the plane was busted up and hauled off...Anyone going to Manila please see about this! I have lots of Photos for anyone who wants them, I don't have a scanner here right now, but I'll have my daughter do it for you.
