Title: Boeing 707

The Boeing 707 first flew as the Boeing prototype model 367-80 in July 1954. The USAF ordered the aircraft into production as the KC-135 aerial refueling aircraft. Boeing developed a slightly larger version of the aircraft as the Boeing 707 airliner which first entered service in 1958. Although not the first jet airliner into service it was the most widespread in service and is usually credited with starting the jet age.

It remained in production from 1958 until 1979 by which time a total of 865 had been produced.
