I see nine as well with the 9th one being a small portion of the tailplane in lower left corner in addition to the TWA 707 and rear of a BA L1011 upper right corner and the BA 111 mixed with Tridents at the terminal.

Its definately a Trident in that left bottom corner look at the angle of the tail plane cone it slopes downward look at it vs one of the other tridents. The 111 tail plane cone does'nt slope downwards.

Great reminder of happy days spotting from T1 in the 70's (yes you could see this view from the public side). A typical days spotting from the Queens Building top deck would have included such gems as:
BA VC-10's, Concorde, 741's, Viscounts and Vanguards
Pan Am & TWA 70's & 74's
DC-8's from Air Canada, KLM, Swissair
DC-10's from Air Ziaire, MAS, ANZ and SIA if I remember rightly
Gulf Air VC-10's and their lovely L1011's
Tupolevs and Ilyshins from Aeroflot, LOT, Malev, CSA (OK Jet), Balkan
Air France & Finnair Caravelle's
MEA & TMA 707's and 720's
Many long gone carriers including Seeboard World, Flying Tigersa and East African
