Best European 707 Destinations

Sun Sep 02, 2007 12:33 am

What are the best airports in Europe for seeing 707s? Are there any places where they still regularly land, or where many are parked?

If you're happy with military variants of the 707 (and some of the last 707 airframes built), the NATO E-3 AWACS fleet is based at Gelsenkirchen, Germany (near Dortmund, northeast of DUS). French Air Force AWACS are based at Avord air force base in central France, about 200 km south of Paris. British AWACS are based at RAF Waddington in northeastern England.

Commerecial 707s must be very rare in Europe now, probably a few freighters and the occasional VIP visitor.

Ostend, probably - lots of freighters.
Manston, England - where old 707's go to die.
