This old Boeing 707-3J9C is the last passenger 707 in the world. She has 37 years old.She now is flying as a civil passenger airplane in last years of her life in Saha Airline.IRIAF will convert it to Tanker configuration by 2014. Look at auxiliary air intakes of its old JT3D-3B Turbofan engines in open position around its nacelles, they are helping engine to suck more air for boosted take off. they will be closed during flight

Thank you for sharing this interesting shot with us. I love this lovely bird, I love its engines, their smokes, sounds and so on, mixture of these interesting things are made our memories of the past revolution and Iran-Iraq war days of these lovely old birds. When they were flying as transport airplanes en-route Europe and US and then as Tanker airplanes during the war with Iraq.

Great shot from a truly classic aircraft... I really wish I had a chance to fly on a 707 over here, but there just arent any left in commercial service. I guess I just have to watch the movie "Airport" and hope for the best :)
