Boeing 727,747 are from the wing tips.

DC 8 is from from extendable fuel dump chutes just behind the landing gear that are stowed int the wing in the retracted position.

The 767 fuel jettison discharge nozzles (if installed) are located inboard of each outboard aileron.
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

I think you mean just outboard of the low speed ailerons.

The 100/200/300 series is on the wing tip. The 400 series didnt move the fuel dump with the wing extension. It was left in the original place outboard of the low speed ailerons.

I can definitely testify to the wing tip locations of the older 747s. In 1990, aboard Clipper Black Sea (N743PA), on a max weight takeoff on a hot day from FRA, we had to jettison for 30 minutes after #1 failed. What a stomach in throat feeling when after a minute and a half takeoff roll (I usually seen 1 minute), there is a loud bang just after rotation,followed by a nose down motion too close to the treetops.The flight attendant I was seated next to at L4 told me "we're not climbing" and I told her " atleast we're ABOVE the trees! ". Thanks to Boeing and the crew up front we were able to eventually make an uneventful landing. And to think I asked the captain before takeoff if I could ride up there with them instead of having to wait until the next flight!I wonder to this day what that would have been like!
