Nice to see someone has a sense of humor on the paint scheme.  Now, if they'd paint a whale tail on the horizontals...

Found this on Facebook. Scale? 1/72? 1/100?

From: Shea Oakley July 21 at 9:26 PM

Purchased this from a retired Eastern executive in Miami back in February. She is a Boeing factory model (fiberglass over brass) of the 2707-100 SST, the ill-fated answer to the Anglo-French Concorde. Made circa 1966 the model is five feet long and the variable-sweep "swing-wings" actually open and close. She also includes movable flaps and spoilers and is, without question, the new flagship of my "fleet"!

That is cleverly disguised a home defense protection weapon.

He appears to have another, in United marking, on top of the display case. ;)

If the 2707 was supposed to be 305 feet long, the model works out to the ever popular scale of 1/61

Extraordinary AP photo of California's firefighting 747 in action.
