You can still catch a ride on Argentine military airline LADE, who operate unscheduled and charter flights during high (austral) summer and winter holidays (July), mainly to Patagonia. They fly two B707-387Bs, one from 1966 the other from 1975, in a Y174 configuration. The latter was the presidential transport from 1975-92, and remains in mint condition. Return flights with LADE usually cost less than US$100!

You should go to Iran and fly a 74L, a 727 and a 707.  Big grin

If you look very hard at the background of this picture you will notice a line of high-rise buildings. Could this be the "Axis Of Evil" Old Rummy has been babbling about all those years?
