Someone will know but this could have been ex-Laker, no repaint, just change the logo - plenty like that over the years.

I suspect that this B707 was originally with Qantas even before she was with Laker. The -138 model had limited range, which would account for needing a fuel stop in Gander, even heading east with tailwinds from KIAG to Gatwick.

I did a really high resolution of the slide looking for a tail number, but unfortunately if it's where I suspect it is, the pickup truck with the stairs blocks the nose gear door and the pax block part of the tail. Oh well...
