Don't think that it'a a B707....not with those pods under the wing tips.... early EC135?

Is that not Prague Airport?

Definitely a 707 - the pods under the wingtips are aerial refueling pods. The Italian Air Force do have them.

Which Jersey Airport is that, I wonder?

Surely not the rather short runway on a Channel Island, where, from what I recall of the performance charts, it would be an act of supreme courage to land a B707 or any variant thereof, let alone get it off again.....

One of the buildings in the background is marked CSA Cargo - other buildings prove this is not Jersey

The caption under the video screen clearly indicates that it is a video of an Italian Air Force 707 landing at Prague.

What's so special about this landing? It's just another 707 arrival. Its happened millions of times over the last 50 years, although not so often recently.
