Two 707s serve as the Spanish equivalent to Air Force One (used to fly the
Head of State on official trips). They are so noisy they need
to obtain a special waiver from US authorities when traveling to the US.
They replaced a DC-8 (sorry I cannot remember which one) that had
frequent break-ups and became a source of concern.
