Love Pan Am, especially the older Pan American liverys. Thank you for that great 707.

A great photo to be sure; it also points out a slight flaw in the retro-livery: the silver cheatline isn't quite correct; it originally taperred much closer to the radome blackout spot on the point of the nose than shown here (look at other vintage PA 707's for comparison).

One tends to ask "why have they stopped building airplanes like this beauty and why have they stopped to paint airplanes like this instead of cryptic billboards and producing A380s ?"

Incomprehensible how there isn't a PAA 707 preserved in the USA. There are more civilian 707s preserved in Europe! This one barely fits my monitor(not a fan of oversized shots) but great subject so it gets 5-stars ;)

How big is a 707? Is it about like a stretched 737?

Wow, look how small the cargo pit door is....and the forward RH door also. I guess they didn't have much faith in their door frame designs back then.
