Pan Am Boeing 707-121 N707PA "Clipper Maria".

On October 13 1955 Pan American agreed to purchase six Boeing 707-121s.
On October 26 1958, it was the first airline to put the aircraft in service, using it on its New York-Paris route.
Boeing 707-121 N707PA “Clipper Maria” first flew on March 21 1958 and it was delivered to the airline on December 19.
In December 1964 N707PA was converted to 707-121B configuration.

Wish it was my lawn ornament.

You must have a mansion then! Can I see it?

It was a joke.

As much as I’d like to have one

I know it was. You can still have it as an scale model though.

I just am so sad that the very first real intercontinental passenger service jet was “broken up in May 1988”. Why wasn’t this airliner saved for future display, I would loveed to have seen it in the Smithsonian Air Museum. Wonder who authorized it to destroyed?
