Default Something is missing

In their own ways, the planes shown on these photos were pioneers, they were the first in their categories.

Obviously, one is missing : the B 707-120, preferably, the first generation with short fin, no ventral fin and of course, early engines PW JT3Cs …a true -120, not a -120 B which was a -120 modified to the point was it looked like a B 720 B …
Meanwhile, I am ready to welcome an accurate B 707-320, a step in the right direction.

Maybe next year ?
Rui, with the help of you Aladdin lamp, anything on the horizon ?

It is worth recalling their first flights.
Comet 1 27.07.49
Caravelle 27.05.55
TU 104 17.06.55
B 707-120 20.12.57
DC 8-10 30.05.58
CV 880 27.01.59
CV 990 24.01.61

I love these history lessons. Like a librarian, Jean Pierre, you always manage to show us something interesting...

Jean Pierre, its an Alladins lamp, not a crystal ball!!?, Id love a 720 too, nice sharp shaped nose, etc....wouldnt you like a 720 too?!?....maybe those who listen will make one, who knows?! Or maybe theyre just waiting for some manufacturer to do one and then jump into it and make the same model....its like those buses, you wait aaaages for one and then two show up at the same time.
I like those photos of yours, the "?" Really stands out!!?,
