This Boeing 707 landed @ Maastricht Aachen Airport in the Netherlands during its very last flight, as it is about to be parted out. While some parts will be used by the Aircraft maintenance school of Leeuwenborgh, most parts will be scrapped. It belonged to the Airborne Early Warning Force, AWACS, component of NATO at the Geilenkirchen Air Base in Germany. It was capable of conducting air-refueling training, however fuel could not be loaded due to having only a "dry" air-refueling receptacle. The aircraft could be quickly changed from an all passenger to all cargo configuration, and can be operated in a configuration carrying both cargo and passengers, hence the name "Trainer Cargo Aircraft". It was delivered to the Belgian Airline Sabena in 1969 and taken over by NATO in 1986. Filmed with a Canon EOS 60D
