I was flying SEA-ANC on this 707, more than 30 years ago! Beautiful isn't it?

Rare to find a good shot showing the oval ceiling lights. Love the velvet mini-drapes & tassels!

Gawd. The "penthouse" interior of the original 707s are the most beautiful airliner cabins ever. Miraculously, the three Saha Air 707s still flying passenger schedules in Iran look like this, so it can still be experienced for real. Meanwhile this gorgeous photo exists to show those who can't make it to Iran what a classic aircraft the seven-oh is.

The best aircraft ever made. I flew many times aboard the Boeing 707 form New York to Paris and back. Magnificent plane, smooth and strong, straightforward reliable mechanical operation. Comfortable, beautiful design. Those round shape over the head lamps were lit at night with very dim diffused blue light and you could see dozens of bright little white stars shining through the domes. A very simple yet spectacular effect on night flights! Everybody got a 100% pure wool blanket, white cotton slippers and black sleep eye masks. Wonderful! Excellent picture! It made me travel back in time... Congratulation on the photo!

Super! To see this old state of art cabin shot.
Thanks for sharing.

When it comes to elegance it has to be either the 707 or VC10.

Loved the old oval lights on the 707 really cool.

Beautiful... and more! You captured the ambiance of this magical airliner with all its glory. The sky blue colors are unmistakably Pan American World Airways. I flew on many of these as a wide-eyed child, possibly a JT-4 - powered early version such as this. Thank you for the memories - precious!
