All the following drawings are from a 17-page document on the origins of the 707. A local club member has been clearing out his file
boxes. I snagged this one.

The first design, 473-12 reminds me of the Baade 152 The flying wing version is cool, too. Too bad we ended up with boring tubes with wings.

Thanks for sharing Jon. Some very cool designs. And some very ugly ones too!
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Interesting tidbit I just came across:  the RAAF for 6 B707-320C aircraft including a boom refuelling system suitable to support F-111s.  They were also pushing the 707s as a C-130A replacement. Could be an interesting subtle whiff:  a RAAF 707 but with added boom:

Carlos, a glass nose for the navigator and Aeroflot livery on the turboprop 707 would look good.
