All were for Braniff International Airways and carried the model number 707-227; the first entered service in December 1959. The 707-820 was a proposed intercontinental stretched variant of the 707-320B. A four point underwing pressure fuelling system is used. The 505 model would have had a fuselage 45 feet 14 m longer than the 707-320B and would have carried 209 passengers in mixed-class configuration and 260 passengers in all-economy configuration. Built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, the 707 narrow body jet airliner first flew in 1957 and entered revenue service with Pan American World Airways in 1958. Note the 707 and U.
The aircraft flight instruments include an integrated flight instrument system and a Polar Path Compass System; a conventional magnetic compass; turn-and-bank indicator; rate-of-climb indicator and clock are also provided. Numerous access doors and panels are provided for inspection and maintenance. The rudder, flaps and spoilers are hydraulically operated. The 707-620 was to carry around 200 passengers while retaining several aspects of the 707-320B. The wing centre section tank is composed of integral sections at the wing root, plus nylon and rubber bladder cells enclosed by wing structure bays.
This version was made obsolete by the arrival of the turbofan-powered 707-120B. Thermal anti-icing is provided for the wing leading edges, engine nose cowl and engine inlet guide vanes. These wingtips increased overall wingspan by three feet. It was a variant for Qantas, thus had its customer number 38. Born in Sydney, Australia, Charles lives in London. The fuel manifold can be supplied from any main tank or from the wing centre tank. The primary control surfaces consist of ailerons, elevator and rudder.
Although it was not the first jetliner in service, the 707 was the first to be commercially successful. Most major servicing is accomplished on the right side of the fuselage. All trade names, trademarks and manufacturer names are the property of their respective owners. The brake hydraulic system incorporates anti-skid. An observer or check pilot is accommodated behind the pilot.
The 506 model would have had a fuselage 55 feet 17 m longer than the 707-320B and would have carried 225 passengers in mixed class configuration and 279 passengers in all economy configuration. Main tanks fuel boost pumps supply fuel directly to the corresponding engines and to the fuel manifold through the manifold valves. Fuel is supplied directly to each engine from the respective main tank or from the fuel manifold. Although Built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, the 707 narrow body jet airliner first flew in 1957 and entered revenue service with Pan American World Airways in 1958. Takeoff gross weight was increased to 328,000 lb 149,000 kg.
Jetliners of the Red Star, a history of the Soviet Union's jet airliner types, is due in 2016. Five of these were produced, but only four were ultimately delivered with one being lost during a test flight. Nose section preserved at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. Although it was not the first jetliner in service, the 707 was the first to be commercially successful. The hydraulic system consists of a utility system and an auxiliary system designed for a working pressure of 3000 psi.
Military The militaries of the United States and other countries have used the civilian 707 aircraft in a variety of roles, and under different designations. As an icon of the post-war boom in mass air travel, the American-designed and built Boeing 707 became the face of passenger air transport in the 1960s and remained at the forefront of civil aviation into the 1970s. The wing was modified from the? Separate, independent oxygen systems provide oxygen for the crew and passengers. It established Boeing as one of the largest manufacturers of passenger aircraft and led to the later series of airliners with '7x7' designations. In addition to aiding in lateral control, the spoilers can also be used as speed brakes. The 175 707-320B aircraft were all new-build; no original? The longer wing carried more fuel, increasing range by 1,600 miles 2,600 km and allowing the aircraft to operate as true transoceanic aircraft. The Polar Path Compass system provides heading information from the D.
This thrust did not require water injection, eliminating both the system and the 5000—6000 lb weight of the water itself. The 707-320B Advanced is an improved version of the? A synchronising bus-tie loop makes it possible for any generator to supply power to any load bus, in addition to its own load bus, and any combination of generators can be operated in parallel to share the total power demand.

Please refer to the table at the foot of the page for metric conversions. Two variations were proposed, the 707-820 505 model and the 707-820 506 model.
Built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, the 707 narrow body jet airliner first flew in 1957 and entered revenue service with Pan American World Airways in 1958. The following is reproduced verbatim from the Qantas Boeing 707-138B Operations Manual dated 22 April 1968. The addition of two additional emergency exits, one on either side aft of the wing raised the maximum passenger capacity to a theoretical 219. The nose gear is a dual wheel hydraulically steerable unit. First service was June 1962, with Pan Am. The interior allowed up to 189 passengers due to an 80-inch 2,000 mm fuselage stretch ahead of the wing from 138 ft 10 in 42.
Major orders were the launch order for 20 707-121 aircraft by Pan American and an American Airlines order for 30 707-123 aircraft. Only a few aircraft were delivered as pure freighters. Cargo is accommodated in two cargo compartments, one located in the lower forward and the other located in the lower aft sections of the body. Versions of the aircraft have a capacity from 140 to 219 passengers and a range of 2,500 to 5,750 nautical miles. The 707-138B conversion involved a tailplane extension of 1 foot 8 inches on each side, which should result in a tailplane span for the 707-138B of 43 feet 0 inches. Pressurisation is accomplished by controlling the outflow of cabin air through the outflow valves, located along the bottom centreline of the aircraft.
