Default What aircraft is in the background of the photo?

Saw this photo on airliners.net .
I'm trying to identify the aircraft and airline in the background with the red and blue tail. The engines make me think it's a 707. Photo was at Malta airport.
Anybody have a better idea?

Very interesting, thank you so much! No wonder I couldn't figure out the airline

Nice pictures! The engines looks so funny in the picture. Maybe it is distorted because o the jet wash.
