This airplane is parked in Tegel airport. Probably something extremely common, but can you please help to identify it?

Looks a whole lot like a Boeing 707

    Thanks, it apparently is a 707-458 and has an interesting history digitalcosmonaut.com/2016/berlin-tegel-abandoned-boeing-707 . – ffc Nov 8 at 7:10

    Like most of the abandoned aircrafts. In some countries, learning the story of an abandoned aircraft can tell you a lot for the country itself, especially when the owner was the country itself. – gsamaras Nov 8 at 9:48

    People normally include pictures or further reading links in aircraft identification questions. – Notts90 Nov 8 at 13:38

In the far corner of Tegel Airport, to the southwest (here a satellite image), lonely a plane with a special story rots: The Boeing 707 was a gift from the manufacturer to the Lufthansa and landed in 1986 by tricky preparations as the first Lufthansa aircraft in West -Berlin. Otherwise only Allied aircraft could fly through the east corridor. Lufthansa donated the plane to the Berlin Technikmuseum, which, however, can not do anything with it. Every now and then, the airport fire brigade on the Boeing exercises in case of emergency.
