707 Maintenance In North America

Wed Dec 27, 2006 2:31 am

I did a thread on this concerning DC-8's before but now my question is: Who in North America maintains 707's? John Travolta I think has his 707 maintained in Florida somewhere. Any info would be helpful, thanks!

Due to the number of Air National Guard units operating KC-135's, I'd imagine that finding personnel capable of maintaining a 707 and finding 707 parts in North America would be a non-issue, as long as you have the  dollarsign  to keep one in the air (remember, an airplane doesn't fly because of Bernoulli's principle, but because someone threw enough money at the problem  Wink ).

Timco does JT's, It was there when one of my previous employer's aircraft was there for a HMV. There are many others many others. Most have the aircraft on their AMO certs. I do not have the world aerospace directoy here so I cannot get the list. So they just need to get one in the hangar and they can maintain it.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"
