This was the first jet operated by El Al, delivered in May 1961 and had the honor of establishing two world records. On June 15, 1961 4X-ATA flew 5760 miles nonstop - a new distance record for a scheduled commercial flight. Accomplished in 9 hours, 33 minutes, this flight also set the speed record for JFK-TLV flight. 4X-ATA served for 23 years, retiring in 1984. In all it carried over 2 million passengers more than 36 million miles, equivalent to circling the world 1450 times, without incident.

The rest of the body of 4X-ATA used as a flight attendants trainer at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV/LLBG) but was scrapped few years ago.
