	On the topic of the 707/KC-135 connection, the 707 and KC-135 
share components, but in no case do they share the same wing.  The 
707-120 and KC-135 have the same wing layout, but the KC-135 and 707 are 
constructed of different Aluminum alloys.  The 720's wing is modified 
with a glove and the 707-300's wing (and -400) has a different layout.  
As documented elsewhere, the 367-80, KC-135 and 707 fuselage 
cross-sections are all different.
