Introduced by Boeing in 1958, the 707 ushered in the age of commercial jet travel. Our model was used in travel agencies or executive offices to promote the jet, as flown by Air France. Painted metal aircraft models were a costly advertisement and soon replaced by a cheaper plastic version. They have become quite desirable and collectible, especially with good original airline markings. This model has various chips in the paint, with a few touched up. The cast metal base is in original wrinkle painted finish.
