It is a cool distinctive feature. Not all 707s had it though; some domestic 707s did not have HF radio and thus lacked the antenna.

Where do you think they get the fresh "chicken" Always safer than the fish
So do they draw straws on who is the lucky one to go get the "fresh" chicken during flight?

And where is it in modern airliners??
On the 744, it's on the vertical stabilizer. IIRC, the forward lower part.
|Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 16):|
On many propeller types and on few jets operated in remote areas (northern Canada etc.), the HF antenna was a wire stretched between the tail and a point on the fuselage. If you enlarge the photo of the SV 732 you can see two wires (not sure if they are both for HF?) between the vertical stabilizer (about half way up) and the fuselage near the rotating beacon.
|Quoting LongHauler (Reply 18):|
One thing I never realised before after looking at all these B707 pictures ... American's B707s only had Turbo-Compressors on engines 2 and 3, and not 2, 3 and 4 like other airlines B707s.
That used to be the best way to tell a B720 from a B707, as the B720 always had TCs on 2 and 3, and the B707 has them on 2, 3 and 4 ... until I looked at AA's.
Any ideas why the difference?
