A.net Location & Identification Assistance Requested For Airport & Planes

Sat Jul 03, 2021 3:53 pm

The following picture is a photo of my TV screen of a stock image in an episode of Lucifer (season 5, episode 11, "Resting Devil Face"):

And a close-up of the civilian planes:

My apologies for the atrocious quality, but it's the best I could do.

Four questions:

1) Although the script tells us that the characters were supposedly driving to a location relatively close to Los Angeles, the terrain and ground isn't indicative of southern California. I'm guessing Arizona, but I'd love to know for sure. I don't know military airplane graveyards well.

2) Am I really seeing two Boeing 707's STILL proudly showing their Trans World Airlines logos? Can it be that the airline still exists, even if only in this limited form?

3) Can anyone identify the airline of the blue & green airliner?

4) The two TWA 707's look surprisingly small next to "Global International" and the unidentified airliner. They all appear to be 707's, but the perspective is messing with me. Thoughts?

All those military airplanes lead me to believe it's Davis Monathan AFB in Tucson, AZ.

Probably American Eagle. A charter airline that has no relation to today's American Eagle.

I think it’s N402PA (707-321B) correctly identified in American Eagle Airlines livery at DMA.

I think they are all 707-300s and were used as spares for KC-135s etc.

Yeah, ex-PAA and ex-TWA 707s used to convert KC-135As to KC-135Es. Engines and fins removed for the conversion.

In the close up of 707's the red cheatline airplane appears to be a World Airways 707-300 and it also has a close appearance to a QF 707 but the titling above the cheatline does not fit for Qantas Australia as it appeared on that airplane.

There is a group of 5 707-300s there together, N402PA, N881PA, N28714, N18713, N8705T, American Eagle, Global, and TWA.

And now we are seeing some of those 707 engines and vertical fins that were used from those planes head to retirement.
