The first widely used commercial jet, the Boeing 707, brought America into the ‘Jet Age’ of the late 1950s and created the template for worldwide air travel today. The 707 remained in production until late 1978, by which time it was too small to handle the increased passenger densities on many routes, and it was retired to make way for more-modern jetliner types. This book provides a fascinating portfolio of images depicting a wide range of Boeing 707 variants in service around the world, in passenger, cargo and military use, showcasing many of the aircraft’s diverse and colourful liveries. Illustrated with 180 photographs.
