Boeing 707-329: Sounds Good.

The Pratt & Whitney JT4A was the civilian derivative of the J75, which was in turn the bigger brother of the J57 (JT3C in civilian service). Both engines contributed to the 707 unstoppable success.

Incredibly intricate, and futuristic,  rear end. Those “trombones” always played LOUD.

Take a “joli” trip back in time.

  1. Of course, no print advertisement could top Tex Johnson rolling the 707 over Lake Washington. He really put his thumb in de Haviland’s eye, never mind that the Comet could do a 1g roll also. Still, to your average person which was the safer plane?
