	The all Boeing airliners since the 727 have airfoils custom designed by
Boeing engineers.  The 707-100 airfoils are NACA 6X series sections on
modified NACA 230 and 60 series camber lines.  By the time of the
707-300 these had been seriously butchered by the Yehuda, etc.

	Boeing does not put their airfoil coordinates or test data in the
public domain.  However, the wind tunnel test of a 737-200 is reported
in NASA TN D-5971, and the report contains airfoil coordinates.
Similarly, NASA CR-159093 contains the coordinates of an airfoil that is
either that on the outboard wing of the 767 or is closely related to
