@Stuart: Damn, but you said, I should just go and everything will work like magic ... it already looked so good in Flightgear :D

Thanks for the hint Algy - will do! :)

Not sure but this aircraft *may* have dependencies on the "other" 707 in FGFS....I have this new one as directed by Dave (from GIT) that extracts as "boeing-707" and another which is "707" and I believe tha new one (Dave's GIT request) may have dependencies on the 707.

Not sure where I got the 707 - try the official FGFS aircraft downloads.

I'm pretty sure that, according to most FlightGear Boeing 7-series designation, it should just be 707. I think the whole package incorporates the numerous variations. I seem to recall when I installed it, I got rid of the old 707 and renamed the root folder of the new aircraft '707'.

Looking closer at the model.xml, I see that all the call are for the 707, not boeing-707. So, this aircraft is intended to replace the existing "707"....so for proper operation we need to delet the original 707 if it exists, download and install the GIT boeing-707, and then rename the folder from boeing-707 to just plain old 707.

Probably that was explained somewhere already but I missed it in my sleep deprived and harried state.

If you do a straight clone it puts itself into a 707 directory:
(trusty)brendanb@corundum:~/work/Flightgear/GIT$ git clone https://gitorious.org/boeing/707.git 
Cloning into '707'...
remote: Counting objects: 5754, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (5245/5245), done.
remote: Total 5754 (delta 3979), reused 844 (delta 501)
Receiving objects: 100% (5754/5754), 133.67 MiB | 3.25 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (3979/3979), done.
Checking connectivity... done.

Then it can just replace the fgdata 707 version
