Starting life as VH-EBG with Qantas in 9.59 and sold to British Eagle in 3.68, this 707 then flew with Laker from 1.69 to 11.78. Her next 20 years were spent under US registry with various leasing firms but in 1998 she became 9Q-CLK. In 10.07 she underwent a luxury VIP fit in African style at Lanseria for the Congo owner, but then impounded by South African courts. However, flown out 31.10.07 and seen hangared at Kinshasa-N'djili 3.08. Overhauled at MIA and re-delivered to Congo govt in Dreamliner-style livery
