787 Rollout-- Boeing's Entire Jet Family

Sat Jul 14, 2007 8:24 am

A friend sent this shot to me...what a neat picture.
Big version: Width: 960 Height: 768 File size: 245kb
I loved this shot...the entire Boeing jet family represented. Amid all the 787 roll-out hoopla, perhaps the coolest event went unnoticed.

very good pics of Boeing aircrafts. It is too bad that I has not fly on all of them. I had flew on Boeing 727, 737, 757 that is it. I would like to flying on 747, 777, 767 and now 787.

Always thought the 707 was a big aircraft, but people try to tell me otherwise; on the line-up here only the 747 and 777 are bigger. By the way anybody notice Concorde , Her Majesty looking down her nose at all the upstarts.

Don't forget the 707!!!!

That one won't be too easy to fly on unless you happen to know John Travolta.....

Anybody know of another still in service? I'm glad I got to fly on one in the 70's

Yup. That is the City of Everett, N7470/RA001. They also have an AA 727-200, the first 737, and a VC-137B parked next to the Concorde.

The 752 is also longer than the 707-300 (47.3 m vs 46.61 m respectively). The 707-300 wing area is about 50% larger though, reflecting the 707's need for fuel capacity and the aerodynamic advances made in the 25 years between EIS of both aircraft.

I chuckled to myself when I first glanced at the row of aircraft. Douglas may be long gone but the modernized DC-9 is the only non-Boeing design to make this impressive line.
There's nothing quite like a trijet.

And, also note that in this impressive gathering of airplanes, there can be seen a venerable DC-3, tucked in near the B-47, just above the B747-200.

Well, the 720 is basically a 707 variant. It just wasn't given a new designation like the 707-500 or anything like that, as would have happened under modern practices. So the 707 serves as that purpose.

The reverse would be if, say, the 737-800 was called the 750 instead of the 737-800. The 720 uses the same tail and basic configuration as the 707, with some improvements here and there. It really isn't a different family.

I'll defer to others for a more comprehensive answer to your question. About all I can say is that I believe it is a modified B737 NG. The main modification is a feature (radome?) of some sort mounted on top of the aft section of the fuselage. I don't know its registration number, or who owns or operates it.

I have seen that plane parked there on the ramp at BFI every time I have visited the Museum of Flight in the last 2-3 years. (Gee, BFI is just a couple miles south of me; I should drive down and investigate for you.)

It does look like the 737 AEW&C a.k.a. Wedgetail.

It wouldn't be all that unexpected to see the Wegetail at BFI. When I was there many moons ago, I saw some AWACS parked in the same area.

I missed the B-47 out front initially. I wonder where they have the 727-100 in the original UA paint scheme.

Someday I'd love to visit the Museum of Flight, they have an almost pristine B-29 that used to be at the Lowry AFB museum until 1994. Plus, I'll bet they have a B-17 too.

To the best of my recollection, I think Australia and/or New Zealand had purchased the AEW version of the 737NG. Maybe it was awaiting delivery to one of those air forces. Maybe Paul in Seattle could let us all know!

If I remember right, 3 of the 7 shown have the same fuselage cross section and nose. (707, 727, 737)

Sun Jul 15, 2007 3:44 am

In regards to the narrow body line-up:

The upper fuselage lobe of the 707,727,737, and 757 are all the same dimension. The 707 had a substancially larger lower lobe, with larger cargo capacity. The 757's nose and cockpit was changed to have commonality with the 767.

I have often wondered why Boeing didn't graft the 757 nose to the 737NG series.. anyone else wonder that?

Most impressive picture! I only wish I had an opportunity to fly the 707... although I did fly her cousin the DC-8 back in the 80's from Canada (Calgary) to Europe (Copenhagen via Rejkavik). I've enjoyed many flights on almost all series of the 737 (missing -100, -400, -900), flew the "flying banana" 727, and was blown away by the take-off power of the 757 (and it's wing flex in MODERATE turbulence). Still need the 747,767,777 on my list... and can't wait to fly the DREAMLINER!

I drive by the Museum of Flight frequently, and the one thing that always bothers me is how dirty the first 747 is that is part of the display. Great museum. If you are ever in Seattle it is a MUST see.
Heia Norge!

Always thought the 707 was a big aircraft, but people try to tell me otherwise; on the line-up here only the 747 and 777 are bigger.

Quoting MD-90 (Reply 11):
The 707-300 has a big wing, but the 763 is also larger.

The 752 is also longer than the 707-300 (47.3 m vs 46.61 m respectively). The 707-300 wing area is about 50% larger though, reflecting the 707's need for fuel capacity and the aerodynamic advances made in the 25 years between EIS of both aircraft.

It's often overlooked that the 727-200 is also about 3 inches longer than the 707-320 due to the T-tail configuration.
