The Common HF antenna used for transmitting by both HF transceivers.

Another difference that the 720 had that i never saw on a 707
was a underside "small tail fin" which was about 1-foot high and about
2-foot long....

A 720 that was dumped in Dublin
(bahama world airlines -i think ) with a red-dolphin-on-tail-fin had this
"feature" and when asked about this 'we' were told it was an additional
fin to improve stability.
