This is the venerable B_707. Commercial history was made when Pan American World Airways inaugurated trans-Atlantic 707 jet service between New York and Paris in 1958. Then, jetliners rapidly entered service throughout the world. The first commercial 707s, labeled the 707-120 series, had a larger cabin and other improvements compared to the prototype. These initial 707s had range capability that was barely sufficient for the Atlantic Ocean. Other variants were developed for special use, including shorter-bodied airplanes and the 720 series, which was lighter and faster with better runway performance. Then, the larger 707-320 Intercontinental series with a longer fuselage, bigger wing and higher-powered engines was quickly developed.
