	Interesting. Just a guess...but perhaps the slightly
wider 707 fuselage was only with regard to the -upper- lobe of the
double bubble cross-section and not the lower lobe where the wings
are faired-in/attached ?  Note the C-135 series doesn't have the
lobe `crease'  so maybe all the expansion was above the floor line.
