It didn’t just become the 720, 137, E3, E6, and E8 - But you forgot the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker.

What? How can we forget about the KC-135, a very active aircraft.

Belgian Blue is a solid color for the 707!

Middle East Airlines would be important for the 707’s passenger service in the later years of its history.

The KC-135 is the most beautiful heavy aircraft in service today.

I am going to have to agree with you on that one!

Next update - C-17 rework and B707 to include the KC-135R, E-3 AWACS, and E-8 JSTARS. This will satisfy civilian, military, and old school pilots.

Boeing got very little attention from the industry airlines and military officials when it proposed a jet-powered development. The advanced technology was developed by the B-47 and B-52 systems and swept-wings applied to the aircraft commercially, a process known by the Boeing Company. They developed the 707 entirely on their own money.

The B707 is just an amazing aircraft

love b707 would love to see it in game

Would it go with the original low bypass engines, or a modern high bypass retrofit? Something like a 30% reduction in fuel consumption, I think(?).
