Absolutely rare sight in Lajes Field! A Colombian 707 from Israel with Kfir fighters onboard and a BA744 on background after a emergency landing due to electric problems the day before.

Nice to see one of the old girls still sporting the P&W JT-3D engines. Big, loud, and dirty!

A very nice shot but I wonder about the comment "Kfir Fighters on board". I don't think they'll fit through the cargo-door, being modified Dassault Mirage 5 airframes. Are you sure you don't just mean the pilots :-)
BA with problems in the background: what's new here :-(

Nice photo of this good looking old, but still going strong, Boeing 707. Its the grandfather of the troubled 744 in the background.

The 707 still has the best lines of any airliner ever made. Boeing got it right the first time! Wonderful shot. - Brett

The Kfir airframes were actually sent to Colombia by sea. Zeus was carrying different supplies and personnel.
