The 9th of March 2018 marked a significant milestone for the Banbury Connections global connectivity strategy with the delivery of a Boeing 707 completed by Wang Aeronautical Engineering Company. Construction of the Boeing 707, which was delivered in kit form from the United Kingdom in July 2017, was commenced in September 2017. Owing to demands placed on the time of key construction crew, aircraft assembly was somewhat delayed. Notwithstanding, a gallant final effort has seen the Boeing 707 completed and ready for use. Banbury Connections management has hailed the arrival of the new jet aircraft as a new era for the railway with an expected pick-up in tourism volumes and greater connectivity between Europe and Australia. Whilst Qantas management have a view to introduce Boeing 707s shortly, the Super Constellation G is safe for the foreseeable future!
