That is to be expected, the governemt has quite a large fleet of aircraft
that can use parts from the 707.  All the C-135 family (KC/EC/C/RC/etc...),
even though the fuselage is different, have a high degree of commonality.
And then the E-3 Sentry which IS a 707 airframe, and also the VC-137.

Since the 707 line is closed, it is easier to get spares buy grabbing the
ex-civil aircraft.
