Boeing 707-320

One Boeing 707 freighter (5X-UWM) was bought from American Airlines and delivered on 15th May 1975 for freight services mainly to Europe. Not actually operated directly by EAA but painted in a variation of East African colours and used by Simbair. It ended up being impounded at London Heathrow in 1977 after the airline had gone bankrupt. Towards the end of operations, a number of early model 707-320s were also leased from British Midland.
