Boeing 707 (Legends of Flight)

Beginning in the late 1950s, the Boeing 707 revolutionized passenger aviation like almost no other aircraft, as the elegant four-engine aircraft made it possible to serve intercontinental long-haul routes quickly and economically.
This volume in the Legends of Flight series examines the history of this classic jet aircraft, whose memorable design has survived to this day, its basic features still recognizable in the Boeing 737. The history of 707 operations is presented in detail, as is the use of the type by various world military forces and governments - and its famed use as the US presidential Air Force One in the 1960s through the 1980s. Its use by many of the world's most famous airlines, including American, TWA, Pan Am, Northwest, Continental, Air France, British Airways, Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, and Air India, is also covered.

Technical specifications for the 707, the Dash 80 prototype, the Boeing 720 (derived from the 707), the aerial refueler KC-135, and E-3 Sentry, as well as contemporaneous photographs, bring to life the fascinating history of Boeing's first commercial jetliner.

Boeing 707 (Die Flugzeugstars)

Die vierstrahlige Boeing 707 revolutionierte die Passagierluftfahrt der 1960er- und 70er-Jahre wie kaum ein anderes Flugzeug, denn interkontinentale Langstrecken waren nun schnell und wirtschaftlich bedienbar.

Durch verbilligte Ticketpreise konnten nun auch Normalmenschen Transatlantikflüge bezahlen und der Massenflugverkehr war geboren. Ihre Linie machte die 707 zum Archetyp des "Düsenflugzeugs" und sie galt lange Zeit als Design-Ikone.

Auch in zahlreichen militärischen Varianten entstand die Maschine, z.B. als Tankervariante KC-135. Über 1000 Exemplare wurden gebaut. Aktiv sind heute ausschliesslich die Militärvarianten.

Boeing 707: Boeing's First Jetliner

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 first flew on 20 December 1957, and less than a year later it made its first commercial flight from New York to Paris.
Initially flown mainly by Pan American, the Boeing 707 was soon operated by both domestic and international airlines around the world, and the popularity of the aircraft led to increased development of air-traffic-control systems, airport terminals, runways and airport infrastructure.

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. By the end of production, a total of 1,010 aircraft had been built for civil use, though many of these subsequently found their way into military service, and purpose-built military variants remained in production until 1991.

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. Like the aircraft itself, the photographs, taken at airports in North, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, span the world, showcasing many of the aircraft's diverse and colourful liveries.

Boeing 707 Manual (1957 to present) - Insights into the design, construction and operation (Haynes Aircraft Manual)

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 shapely four-jet narrow body helped establish Boeing as one of the largest manufacturers of passenger aircraft.

Boeing 707 Group: A History

The Boeing 707 family - that includes the forerunner Model 367-80, the KC-135 series of military transports and the slightly smaller Model 720 - was the pioneer of the sweptback wing, incorporating podded engines borrowed from the B-47 military bomber. It was the aircraft that many regard as the design that really ushered in the Jet-Age.

This new book from the established aviation historian Graham Simons examines the entire course of the Boeing 707's history, charting an impressive design evolution and illustrating the many ways in which the 707's legacy continues to be felt to this day.
In laying the foundation for Boeing's preeminence on the word's jetliner market during the 1980s and 90s, the 707 paved the way for future innovations in both civilian and military fields and Graham Simons has put together an image-packed history that records the historic and landmark milestones of this iconic aircraft type.

The Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker - More Than a Tanker (Third Edition)

The KC -135A made its maiden flight on 31 August 1956 and was still in front line service some 60 years later. What began as a jet-powered replacement for the KC -97 to refuel Strategic Air C ommand's growing B-47 and B-52 bomber fleet soon evolved into America's first military heavy jet transport, an airborne command post platform, a testbed that enabled scientists to study the Earth, send men to the Moon and understand the power of the atom.
Other variants of the KC -135 included a reconnaissance airframe that monitors arms agreements, gathers intelligence to understand the intentions and capabilities of potential enemies and provides real-time intelligence in combat.

This is a revised and expanded third edition of the definitive study of this remarkable aircraft. The author is a former USAF pilot qualified on 17 types of KC -135s, EC -135s, and RC -135s, who brings both personal experience and a broad historical understanding to this definitive work on one of the most significant military aircraft of the Cold War and beyond.

This latest edition of "Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker: More than a Tanker" incorporates 64 additional pages of new material, photographs, and tables. Included are updates of retired aircraft, tankers transferred to civilian organisations, and new conversions of reconnaissance-related jets.
A brief discussion assesses the turmoil surrounding the KC-135's replacement, and a new appendix provides a historical summary of operational units.

Boeing E-3 AWACS

Die Boeing E3-A "Sentry" mit ihrer unverkennbaren Silhouette ist "das" AWACS-Flugzeug schlechthin (AWACS = Airborne Warning And Control System - fliegender Frühwarn- und Kommandoposten).

Die Maschine mit dem markanten Radom auf dem Rücken dient seit Ende der 70er in der Rolle als Hochleistungsaufklärer und fliegende Befehlszentrale. Auch Grossereignisse, wie Fussballspiele, werden in Zeiten von erhöhter Terrorgefahr aus 12.000 m Höhe überwacht.
