The Boeing 707 is a four-engine commercial passenger jet airliner developed by Boeing in the early 1950s. Its name is most commonly spoken as "Seven Oh Seven". Boeing delivered a total of 1,010 Boeing 707s, which dominated passenger air transport in the 1960s and remained common through the 1970s. Boeing also offered a smaller, faster version of the aircraft that was marketed as the Boeing 720. Although it was not the first commercial jet in service, the 707 was the first to be commercially successful, and is generally credited as ushering in the Jet Age. It established Boeing as one of the largest makers of passenger aircraft, and led to the later series of aircraft with "7x7" designations.

Boeing 707

Designed as the first American turbine-engined airliner, the 707 was first flown on July 15th, 1954. The aicraft was designed from the start as a commercial airliner and military transport/refuelling platform and various models rolled off the production lines for 25 years.

Corgi's 1:144 scale Boeing 707 is large in this scale and features near-solid diecast construction. This model's sleek tubular shaped fuselage and wonderfully sculpted nose has pad-printed windows and doors that do not interrupt the lines of the aircraft. Each release features either the engine nacelles of the early JT3 engines or the later JT4 with turbo fan details clearly seen inside each intake. Certain releases are equipped with individually applied engine noise suppression "hush" kits at each exhaust. Configuration for ground display is easy with landing gear that installs quickly and with air stairs (on most releases) for enhanced ground display (see photos).
