The SAAF acquired three former Air France Boeing 707s in 1982 primarily for use as tankers by 60 Sqn based at Waterkloof.. Two more were added in 1990 and 1992 and the role of early warning and electronic warfare was added to the units capability. Two of the aircraft were capable of carrying ELINT pods although at the time there was much secrecy surrounding that project and they were seldom seen in public. Latterly the 707s were used more for general transport and humanitarian purposes and the type was finally withdrawn in October 2007. 1419 is now displayed in the SAAF Museum at Swartkop.
