Boeing C-137 Stratoliner je VIP transportní letoun odvozený z dopravního letounu Boeing 707, používaný americkým letectvem. Ostatní státy také pořídily jak nové, tak i použité Boeingy 707 pro vojenskou službu, především jako VIP letouny nebo létající cisterny. Navíc model 707 posloužil jako základ pro několik specializovaných verzí, jako je např. letadlo včasné výstrahy E-3 Sentry. Verze VC-137C Stratoliner byla mezi lety 1967 a 2001 používána jako stroj Air Force One.

The Boeing C-137 Stratoliner was a VIP transport aircraft derived from the Boeing 707 jet airliner used by the United States Air Force. Other nations also bought both new and used 707s for military service, primarily as VIP or tanker transports. In addition, the 707 served as the basis for several specialized versions, such as the E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft. The designation C-18 covers several later variants based on the 707-320B/C series.
