Larger version

The Boeing 707 is a four engined turbojet aircraft developed by Boeing in the late 1950s and early 1960s as an air-to-air tanker.

It was originally built for the USAF with the designation C-135. The fuselage is 6 inches wider than that of the C-135.

The Boeing 707 is one of the loudest aircraft, which is why it is not allowed at most airports.
