As a civil transport, the Boeing 707 ushered in the true era of long-range ‘big jet’ air transport, offering new levels of speed and flight comfort. As a military type, the Model 717 brought the art of inflight-refuelling to a fully practical pitch. The basic C/KC-135 series proved to be wonderfully adaptable into a bewildering number of specialised variants, and the civil model 707-300 provided the aerodynamic and structural basis for the E-3A Sentry AWACS aircraft.
