N717QS (cn 20717/882) Built 1974
Quiet Skies Inc's Boeing 707-3J6B, this aircraft later went to Farnborough (FAB / EGLF) in 1998 to show off its Stage III engines and try to get customers to keep their 707's flying with this mod. Winglets were installed as well as an attractive paint scheme but to no avail, the company folded. My friends Craig and Wayne got to ride along on this classic as they taxiied and performed engine tests.
