It was over Lake Washington; this site includes some photos shot

from
the Dash-80 during the rolls:

On August 7, 1955, Alvin M. "Tex" Johnston stuns the crowd at the
Seafair Gold Cup hydroplane race on Lake Washington by barrel (or
aileron) rolling the prototype Dash-80, the precursor to the

Boeing
707, thus launching the era of the modern commercial jet.

Is someone going to roll a 367-80 over Lake Washington on August 7,

2005
to properly commemorate the 50th anniversary of that event?

doubt it since there's only ONE of them and it's in the Smithsonian air

and
space museum ;-)


Couldn't we use a regular old 707 then?

I doubt it. There is only one 367-80, and it is parked at the
Smithsonian at Washington Dulles airport.


Which will open up to the p[ublic in December!
