Cute 707 of government which looks like a brand new plane is seen on a silent take off due to newly installed engines.

They aren't exactly 'new' nor 'old'. They are Pratt & Whitney JT8Ds with hushkits. Not quite 'silent' takeoff... but quieter than a 707 with the original JT3Ds.

Interesting registration on this 707. Does AJD stand for AhmadineJaD? I believe he is the primary user of this aircraft.

The 707 looks pretty sleek with those JT8's. How did Iran procure these engines, and were they originally for a different aircraft type?

I'm pretty sure those are hush-kitted JT3Ds, they still have the turbocompressor intakes whereas the JT8Ds have bleed air and thus a smooth pylon.

I hope to see this beauty in full c/s. Look at their pretty level 3 Hush Kits equipped JT-3D-3Bs,they has been modified with hush kit to be silent and more efficient. EP-AJD/1002 was used in tens of Aerial Refueling missions during the war with Iraq. Thank you for uploading (Babak T)
