Military Boeings - 707, E-3, E-8 etc...

Post by TonyO »

A week after we looked at the Sea King I thought it would be a good idea to look at some fixed wing machines. So this week we'd like to see your shots of military Boeing, but not 135 or variants of that type, instead we want the smoky and not-so-smoky 707s, E-3s, E-6s, E-8s, C-137s which are or have been in service. They can be tankers, transports, VIP aircraft or reconaissance, so lets see a few of yours.

I'd say yes, a 720 is OK by me, what a great looking machine. Any ideas what its full job is?

Its certainly more on topic than the 757s just posted anyway :grin:

The Boeing 720B is the Honeywell Boeing 720 Test Aircraft.

Honeywell's Boeing 720-051B Engine Testbed wears construction number 18384. It first flew on September 15, 1961.

TWA leased it as N794TW beginning on August 27, 1961.

Northwest leased it as N733US on October 26, 1962 and then bought it on July 1, 1968.

Maersk Air registered it as OY-APZ in January 1973 and leased it to Nigeria Airways in December 1974.

TEA leased it as OO-TYA on November 6, 1979 and returned it to Maersk on January 19, 1980.

Conair acquired it on February 16, 1981.

Allied Signal registered it as N720GT on November 24, 1987 and mounted an engine test pylon on the right side of the forward fuselage.

The 720-051B Engine Testbed was registered as N720H in February 2000. Honeywell International acquired it and installed a Honeywell AS977 engine. Honeywell conducts frequent engine test flights with it.

Honeywell's Boeing 720-051B, N720H engine testbed is the last airworthy 720 in the United States.

Hope this helps

full job was - it was broken up for scrap a month or 2 back...been replaced by a 757

I said not on topic as it's not military

I'll let TTP sort out the mess :biggrin:

RC-135s are by their very nature C-135s and thus don't apply to this thread as it says at the top...

But these are very nice Cobra Ball and U-Boat photies... :smile:

Well done to everyone who read the rules... :grin:

Cheers Habu for the comprehensive history. Shame its been scrapped if it was the last airworthy 720. I guess no-one cares. :sad:
