Question About The Engines On The Bon Jovi 707

Tue Jan 24, 2006 12:04 pm

I have a question about the 707 chartered by Bon Jovi. Thankfully the A/C was not severely damaged due to the runway overrun in Hamilton. In the pictures, I noticed the engines do not look right for a 707. The nacelles look more streamlined and there are thrust reversers at the tail end of the engines like the 737-200, 727, and the DC-9/MD-80. My question is are they JT3 engines with new nacelles and hushkitted or was the A/C re-engined with JT8 engines? I included before and after photos.

These are JT3D-3B's with Stage III compliant hush kits.
All this according to the broker trying to sell the classic. Check www.v1aviation.com/Marketplace/B707-330B.
