Anyone Interested In A 707 Fractional Ownership?

Mon Mar 28, 2005 3:14 pm

Found myself curiously cruising controller.com. As I am going to win the next California lottery drawing, I figured I should start shopping for a private aircraft now.

I saw this beauty while it was at LAX recently:

As luck would have it, this bird is for sale. I would prefer a fractional ownership, as I am not sure I can handle all of it myself. Any takers?

Thought I'd ask.

Ah, asking price is USD 9,500,000.00.

She's got the upgraded avionics kit? Count me in for 50!

Seriously, though, it sounds like the price may be a little steep, but if someone with a pocketfull of expendable cash can keep another beauty in the air, I would implore them to do so.

Count me in...........in a few years time when I earn my own money.

How old is the bird? Looks in fairly good shape. I always wanted a real plane.

Oh well, just a few more years.

Hi !!

It's a former LH -320C...with new nacells to make the JT3Ds hushkitted and comply with chapter III.

She is in extraordinarily good condition, has it's own apu in the forward lower lobe...and a beautyful interior!!!

Doesn't eBay have a 707 designed to be a house much cheaper? Not flyable, obviously though

From the brochure:

An aircraft C check was completed in August, 2004.
The next Aircraft D check comes due in 2008.

The exchange rate for the euro should be the other way. A strong euro and weak dollar would make 1000 euros worth about 1,288.54 dollars figuring today's exchange rate of 1 dollar = 77.6 euro cents and 1 euro = 1.28 dollars.

I was on the fence about this until I saw it had a Sony Betamax player - then I knew I wanted in on this deal!

Here in previous colors, Lufthansa's D-ABUF.

http://www.707fan.de/Spotterseiten/B70702/D-ABUF/d-abuf.html

Isn't 9.5 million a bit stiff - with fuel at $1.40 US per gallon - for an aircraft produced in 1965 that has seen commercial service?

For that sort of money I would buy a 737 and then charter it out for business charter to supplement the running costs and create the tax deduction
Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

OK, what are runway requirements? If a 707 can land on short, i.e., MYR, MGM type runways, I'm in -- and for a reasonable price too, i.e., several thousand -- 5 figures if need be

Let see, at 9.5 million dollars for the plane... If you had 365 buyers each getting one day per year, it would cost each of them $26,027.40. Not that bad I guess...but of course that only includes the cost of the plane. Maintenence, fuel, parking, etc...hmmm I am not sure about this one.

Do you mind me putting you on my respected users list?

Alright, ReLAX and Bully707, I'll consider giving 1000-2000 USD for it.
I'll let you know when I've decided.

Well, by my calculations you've had enough pledged to be able to land at Heathrow. Once. Without any fuel. And without owning the aircraft.

Keep on dreamin'...

1965.....about 7 to 8 mill new...there isn't much demand for a 707 today so my opinion is its overpriced.
After ya buy it, you gotta insure and fuel it...
I LOVE the seven oh but I gotta stay out of this one..
good luck

Hi 707-fans  Smile

It's my impression that the price announced for a used plane is often above the actual value of the plane. It seems to be part of the game...

If you want to buy this plane, you must remember to inspect the plane prior to signing any contract. When inspecting the plane you check the infos given by the owner and also check for corrosion and other things that will cost you money if the plane is going to fly.
If you do not know how to perform a check, you can hire an expert. Aircraft appraisal is the term often used about this service.

If you buys this plane (I understand your feelings), I wish you well.

Yours in realtime
