The engine pylons on the Boeing 707 housed the cabin air conditioning units.
Passenger versions of the B707 had three engine driven air-cycle
air-conditioning units in engines 2,3 and 4, the 320C freighter had only two,
engines 3 and 4. These units achieved a cabin differentional of 8.6 lbs/sq in.
 The smaller B720 only required two units as per the freighter versions.  The
B720 was almost externally identical to the heavier B707s but had a different
structure and corresponding lighter operating weights.
