I have many fond memories of 2 flights I took on TWA 707s, from St. Louis to Pittsburgh, and then back from Pittsburgh to St. Louis, during the Christmas holidays of 1981. The open air overhead storage areas with no closing doors, the cruising at 41,000 feet. The very loud engines at takeoff and when the engines were reversed at landing. Sounds and sights of an era gone by. At the time, I had no idea, that this was near the end of the line for the TWA 707, or that TWA at the time was one of the last, if not the last US airline to use the 707. I would have enjoyed it even more, if I knew it all was about to end. Does anybody else have similar memories of a late 707 US flight?
