[8] .The 7X7 was intended to be a mid-size wide-body airliner slotted between the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-10.[8] With aging fleets of 707s needing replacement, the 7X7 would slot between the Boeing's narrow-body jetliners and the 747. Initially, the 7X7 studies focused on a trijet design,[8] with possible configurations including overwing engines, a T-tail, among others.^ With the 707 aging, Boeing decided to offer a mid-size plane to fit in between the 727/737/757 and the 747.
