    Where did Tokens find this aircraft?

    The Arizona desert is home to many retired people... and planes. We located a Pan Am Boeing 707 in one of the salvage lots surrounding Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ.

    What type of aircraft of is it?
    A Boeing 707 that was in service for Pan American Airlines, tail number N880PA. The 707 was the first pure-jet service used by a U.S. airline and was at the forefront of the jet age. With a longer fuselage, bigger wings, higher-powered engines and increased fuel capacity, it could travel farther and more smoothly than ever before. Pam Am’s used to the Boeing 707 to revolutionize intercontinental travel.
    What is the history of the Tokens 707?
    Pan Am operated their inaugural 707 flight on October 26, 1958 and went from New York to Paris, covering 3,634 miles in 8 hours and 41 minutes.
    By 1983 Pan Am had replaced all of its 707s, but wanted a celebration worthy of its historic achievement, duplicating as closely as possible the original inaugural flight. A Boeing 707 (N880PA) was reacquired and repainted to duplicate the color scheme used on the original 707 in 1958. To make the recreation authentic, popular magazines and newspapers from 1958 were placed in the seat pockets, 1958 movies were shown on board, and the dinner menu was adopted from the 1958 Maxim’s of Paris version used on the inaugural flight.

     

    Where On Earth Do You Find These Things?

    The Arizona desert is home to retired people... and more than a few retired planes. In 2008, we located a Pan Am Boeing 707 in one of the salvage lots surrounding Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ.   Once decommissioned, aircraft are "parted out" until there is not much left but the aluminum fuselage (skin), which eventually gets melted and sold as scrap.  Drawn to the twin icons of a Boeing 707, the aircraft that ushered in the jet age and Pan Am, the airline that opened the world to air travel, we mounted a rescue mission to purchase & transfer the fuselage & the tail fin to our facility in Berkeley. 

    As of 2022, this aircraft is still being parted out... in Tokens style.

    New York to Paris - Pan Am Style

    The Boeing 707 Tokens found (N880PA) in the desert was actually was used by Pan Am in commemoration of their entry into the Jet Age. Pan Am operated their inaugural 707 flight on October 26, 1958 and went from New York to Paris, covering 3,634 miles in 8 hours and 41 minutes.
    By 1983 Pan Am had replaced all of its 707s, but wanted a celebration worthy of its historic achievement, duplicating as closely as possible the original inaugural flight. A Boeing 707 (N880PA) was reacquired and repainted to duplicate the color scheme used on the original 707 in 1958, they even added a unique decal to the side. To make the recreation even more authentic, popular magazines and newspapers from 1958 were placed in the seat pockets, movies of the year were shown on board. Even the dinner menu was adopted from the 1958 Maxim’s of Paris version used on the inaugural flight. Some 64 years later, we can get there a bit faster without having to refuel, but Pan Am set the standard for getting there in style.
