I look forward to seeing what the Inflight QANTAS B 707-138 looks like …

They said new tooling …
I am sure they will use the wing of their B 720 model, but it needs to be reworked, details of the flaps and spoilers are wrong.
I have sent an email to Inflight, no answer.

According to the artwork already published it is not clear if it will be a -138 or a -138B.

Fingers crossed.

Jean Pierre.

Now I remember that I posted this subject in the 1:1 section a few months back in May. Yep, that would be nice if a 1/200 manufacturer would roll this out. T7

Well fellow collectors there is good news on that front. JT's 707 is going to HARS (Historical Aircraft Restoration Society). HARS have had a model commissioned before and I believe that Collectors Aircraft Models Australia (CAMS) made this possible. It was a Lockheed Super Constellation. I have pictures of the model and the history on the back of the box. It was hoped at the time that they could use Qantas titles on the aircraft but I am not sure what happened there. I like "Connie" titles better anyhow. Also this airfield houses VH-OJA and can't wait to get down there when Mr John Travolta flies his baby home. This field is just about 1 hour and 45 minutes from my home. Let's hope the there will be a nice 1:200 QANTAS 707-138B Ex VH-EBM now N707JT model in 2018. Here is HARS Connie model. FYI

This Connie was on completion/maintenance at Lockheed Aeromod Centre at Tucson/AZ. when they had the Flying Hospital in the works. Recall that they were doing some test on the apron when I inspected the 'hull' of the Worldways TriStar they used for the Flying Hospital. Great project.

Great info there Madridsta, Apart from VH-OJA that is on static display, the rest of the aircraft HARS keep up to flying status. Connie still flies. From time to time.

Several years ago when the Qantas 707-138 was restored after nearly 50 yrs in storage and flown from the Southend UK to Australia, it routed thru Orlando. Mr. Travolta flew down from his house in Ocala (Jumbolair a 12 minute flight) for a photo op. I was granted access to the Signature flight support ramp but was told photos strictly prohibited. I did manage to pop these 2 off.

There was a small welcoming ceremony and John talked to the ferry pilots for a short while inside and the two planes were parked side by side for the photos, and then he was off back to Jumbolair.

It all happened so fast...but I will always remember how lucky I was to witness that historic aviation event.

A few years later I got to visit the museum in Illawarra Australia

Qantas would have to have the best heritage approaches hands down.
Not many airlines have helped restoring 2 x 747's, 2 x Connies, 2 x 707's, 1 x Dc3 and whatever else is out there I might of overlooked.
Plus also 2 x retro roo 738's!!

Great photos Mr Crownvic. I have the DVD of the return of the 707 some of you may have later released versions called "From South Hampton to Longreach." Just love this DVD. The aircraft wore the rego VH-XBA and still does is on static display in Longreach Queensland where Qantas started business. I still need to get up there soon. This JT aircraft is coming somewhat closer to Sydney though. The photo Russel of you in front of the Connie is a bit sideways but we get it. I hope they took you up in it. Also I hope you and anybody else interested get down here when JT brings his aircraft down to hand over. Should be nothing short of a huge event! Let hope the model is there in the HARS shop to purchase on that day.

That's so nice of JT. Because of him, we're able to see a B707 still flying in classic Qantas livery. I hope the aircraft continues to fly.
