I saw a very strange looking 707 yesterday at the Burbank airport. I glanced out the window and saw a 707 with enormous winglets taxi by. Not the little fences like on an A320, but 6 or 7 foot tall winglets like on a 747-400. The fuselage lettering said something like "Stage III 707" and the was an emblem with the letters "SI" on the tail. The engines were the old pure turbojet type, not the later turbo fans. Anyone know what I saw, and why it was built? I can't imagine there is much economic value left in ancient 707s. -- Stuart Feigin This message has nothing to do with Oracle Corporation.
