Notes:

it was the only active civil 707 in the world when I took this photo but retired on Sep 10, 2021. Little story behind: Left home at 5am, Flew down to Myrtle Beach from Newark in the morning for it and luckily got some help to get into the ramp. Right after I left terminal I tried to take a pic of it though the fence and then I moved to a spot for departures. Minutes after I got to the spot then 2 cops came and told me someone called police so that was why they were there. They were surprised that I was from jersey and I spent $300 on the tickets only to get 707 at first. Had a good conversation with them about the 707 and the Omega Air Refueling then they gave me an idea to find people in the GA building to get access to the ramp. About 5 minutes after they left, one of them returned with his own car and asked me if I wanted to get into the ramp and get some close shots of the 707. I was so damn excited to get that opportunity and later he told me I was screaming like a five-year-old boy. He then checked my ID and brought me to the ramp. He asked me where I wanted him to park so I could get good views. He drove around the 707 twice and I got lots of pics of the 707 from different angles. While talking to him my voice was shaking bc I was so damn excited. funny thing was When I was waiting my flight back up I realized I left my wallet in his car but I asked his fb before he dropped me off at a spot. It was the best day ever in my spotting life.
