I mentioned this one before, but obviously I didn't look at it close enough

My eyesight is going to seed as I've hit the big 50 but, I'll go out on a limb and say the bird in the corner of the left L looks like a Lockheed Electra. The L-188's wings were reverse swept a bit and squarish as compared to the other 4 banger and for that matter 2 banger classic props from way back in the day. The three birds on the right side above the big Boeing look to be the DC-7 family.


I'm Zippyjet & I approve of this message!

Hi!

I can see a BOAC DC-7C and a Stratocruiser, also a L1049 of Iberia, a L1649A Starliner that looks like Air France, and a L1049G with tip tanks that could easely be a Lufthansa.
Regards

I'm guessing no Electras in the pic-- by the time they appeared the concrete ramp would be dirtier.

What I didn't notice: the pic is backwards.

Quoting Zippyjet (Reply 1):

And I would say that the one at the corner of the terminal is a Strat' of most probably BOAC.
