Two Braniff International Boeing 707-227 El Dorado Super Jets registered as N7073 followed by N7074 are nearing completion on the predelivery line at Boeing's Renton, Washington Plant in December 1959. Ship N7072 was delivered to Braniff on the first of December 1959 and one additional Series -227s (N7075) came from this same plant in early 1960.

Here's another one of those great "family" shots - Lockheed transports on the line at Burbank...probably early 1952.
