A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2011:
This photograph was taken when people still dressed themselves up before traveling in such marvelous machines. I, too, am old enough to remember boarding AA's 707s in the early 60's and being thrilled to no end to have such an exciting opportunity. I also agree with others here regarding both the livery and lines of American's 707s - extremely pleasing to behold and so rarely replicated no matter how hard today's operators try. One of those things where everything comes together and perfectly compliment each other in doing so. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, wonderful photograph.

Sorry, nothing is more beatiful than a 707

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 1, 2011:
DC-8 was better looking.

A visitor from - posted Fri November 25, 2011:
That's correct. Three turbo compressors was standard fitment for B-707 and B-720. Got a type rating for both of them. They flew wonderfully. Love this shot. - Brett

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 14, 2011:
The #1 Engine does not have a turbocompressor on it, only three were required. THat isn't a rare configuration at all.

A visitor from - posted Sun August 14, 2011:
Totally facinating photo. Notice #1 engine pylon is not the same as #3 or 4. #1 is straight while #3 and 4 have some curved lines and a little air inlet above the nose cowl. This has got to be a rare picture of a very unique 707. It's possible that the engine pylon configurations are what was being test flown.

A visitor from Ireland posted Thu August 4, 2011:
There's just something about the retro liveries that really appeals, far better than a lot of the benign schemes applied to a good number of the airlines today. A great capture.

A visitor from - posted Tue August 2, 2011:
Thanks for sharing. I was young enough to catch a ride on a TWA 707, but old enough to enjoy the experience. B-707, one of my three favorite American airliners.

A visitor from - posted Mon July 25, 2011:
This is the A/C and livery that got me interested in aviation. The American Airlines 707, a true classic.

A visitor from - posted Tue July 12, 2011:
Love the Livery, looks Classic!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon July 11, 2011:
The first ever, and still remaining, Queen of the Skies. In my books, the most beautiful airliner in the history of human race.
