A few days ago I came up with the fact that maybe 5 B720B's are still in flying condition. I also checked out and maybe two of the special B707-138B are also in flying condition and now I'm comming with the topic of how many "smokers" still fly. A few years ago we had a GE 707-321 that was still flying, unfortunetely that one just "died" a few months ago! But we still have good news, I saw in the A.Net photo engine that at least in 2003 there was a Israeli AF 707-329 still flying..... here goes the photo:

Fantastic and my question would be, how many more left? 707-100/200/300/400's and also DC-8-10/20/30/40's? Are we talking that ONLY THIS Israeli AF old "diesel" is THE LAST MEMBER of this long list?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
