This is a Texas Cargo B707-336C freighters before the all white fuselage. It is a former BOAC freighter.

Randy, my V.A. may have to start looking for a new chief pilot. Rumor has it that on those long flights during deep nights up on R220 he has been known to set around in his underwear drinking whiskey and listening to WSM on the ADF. :-)))

the other bill

I think that Northwest stopped their last B-707 operations around 1971-72. For a few years our company logo was that B-707 tail with the sting antenna (red of course). That was when we started with the B-747 birds and shortly after that the DC-10's.

We did have some combi B-727 aircraft for a while.

Regards,

Dux -soon back to Tucson

Mmmmmm, interesting, I just didn't recall that NW had any of the combis/QCs, when they were around. 707s yes, I do recall.
