The B707 in the bottom right corner seems to have CFM56 engines installed. Can anybody identify it? Scan from paperprint.

The 707 in the corner is the 707-700 variant used to test the feasibility of using CFM engines on a 707.

I Believe it's just the engine-wing assembly that's left after the engine itself has been removed.

Love the photo! It is crisp, and brings back some old memories. I used to always visit that side of the airport. Great memories!

Actually the Boeing 707 in the corner is not a -700. It actually looks like a shorter variant. Not the -320, but even shorter. I read somewhere that PW had a 720 with CFMs but I don't believe so.

That's a run of the mill 707, the cowlings are far to long to be a CFM. The 700 demonstrator was refitted to 320 trim before being sold by Boeing anyway.

Great historical LAS shot, but not a CFM powered 707. I believe this is N707XX that later became Travolta's beautiful 707.

That 707 appears to be N707XX...But all of you know it better by another N-number....

Search the database for N707XX and you will see that this is the same 707 - with standard engines.

Cool and prophetic picture. I see United and Continental birds mixed up down there.

Am I seeing things, or did UA actually paint an SP in the blue and grey colors??
And whose Tristar is that in the foreground, still wearing the titles?

Yes UA SPs where in the Blue & Gray livery.

Great catch! Hard to picture stored airliners of yesterday at today's LAS. And yes, the grey 747SP was United's only SP to receive the livery. Around the same time, TWA also painted a single L-1011 in the final livery before retiring it to LAS as well.
