Between 1957 and 1992 Boeing delivered 855 707s in all three versions: 120, 320 and 420 intercontinental airliners. No fewer than 725 of these aircraft, delivered between 1957 and 1978, were for commercial use. Boeing 707-328 F-BHSB was the eighty-first 707 off the production lines and first flew on November 14, 1959. It was delivered to Air France on December 12, 1959, and named “Chateau de Chambord”.
Sierra Bravo was leased to Cameroon Airlines in December 1971 and then returned to Air France in June 1974.
In June 1975, F-BHSB was withdrawn from service and stored at Paris-Orly, where it was broken up in 1977.
