	Get yourself a copy of "Boeing 707 & AWACS in detail and scale" by
Alwyn T. Lloyd (published by Aero Publishers).  This book does an
excellent job of documenting the confusing 707 series of aircraft.  The
following dimensions appear in the book:

		367-80		C-135		707-100		707-300

Wing Span	130' 0"		130' 10" 	130' 10"	142' 5"
Wing Area	2,402 sq ft	2,313.4		2,433		2,982
Body Length	128' 0"		128' 10"	138' 10"	145' 6"
Body Diam	11' 0"		12' 0"		12' 4"		12' 4"
Height		38' 0"		38' 5"		41' 8"		41' 8"
VT area		328.3 sq ft	303.7		303.7		303.7
HT span		39' 8"		39' 8"		39' 8"		43' 0"


As you can see, these are all rather different airplanes.  The -80
orginally flew with JT3s and was later retrofitted with JT3Ds (and
possibly JT4s at one point).  I believe it was also fitted with the
taller Vertical Tail too (I'll check my pictures tonight).  The cargo door
might be a later addition.  I examined -80 last summer, and it is covered
with add-on parts (stiffeners, fairings, etc.).  It might be difficult to
nail down its configuration at any particular moment in history.
