Aerolineas Argentinas 707-387B at EZE in 1968 - Updated

Author of this blog Phil Perry (boy in the middle) with (from left) his mother Virginia, sister Ginny and older brother Ted just having deplaned from Aerolineas Argentinas 707-387B, LV-ISD at EZE on 14Mar68 (thanks to the photographer for having shot the aircraft registration even though I am sure he was not even aware of it !).  Note that it mistakenly says 707-320B on the side of the aircraft.

Also note the formal dress that was still customary when traveling back in the 60's with even I, as a young boy, wearing a coat and tie !  Not the most comfortable way to fly !  My recollection is that the routing was JFK-GIG-EZE.

This aircraft first flew on 08Feb67 and was delivered to Aerolineas on 24Feb67.  It was transferred to the Fuerza Aerea Argentina on 18Jan83 and also went on to fly with PLUNA and the Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca.  It was stored at El Palomar AFB near Buenos Aires on 25Jun04 reportedly in good condtion but "time-expired".   Overhaul work for pax configuration was started but the "D" check was abandoned in 2007 when 80% completed.


  1. I don´t have any records that the plane flew with Fuerza Aérea Guatemalteca. And still stored in El Palomar AFB.

    LV-ISD Aerolíneas Argentinas 24Feb67 "Proción", T-95 Fuerza Aérea Argentina 18Ene83, (Vto. Ezeiza LV-ISD 09Oct83), LV-ISD Pluna 03Mar84 li, T-95 Fuerza Aérea Argentina 03Dic85, LV-ISD Pluna May88 li, T-95 Fuerza Aérea Argentina Jun88.

  2. Wrong comment. I´m from Argentina and i did a repaint for Captain Sim´s Boeing 707 for FSX with this livery, so i had to research very carrefully all the pics about this particularly livery. It hasn´t been written with the name of 707-320B. Instead of that, all the 707 from Aerolineas at that time wore the legend "Boeing 387 B Intercontinental".
