Hello all,

found an old Super-8 movie done by my father, back in winter 1982. It features some nice crosswind landings of a Garuda 747-100 and Swissair DC-10.
A few views from the visitor terrace on Dock-B show us: No Dock-A and -E have been built back then. Just stunning!
Check even out some other surprises in this little film...

Greetz,
Patrick

PS: A Super-8 film is not a digital HD-video. Thus, we have not the quality as we have it today, almost 30 years later.

Cool video! The good old days when every airplane was a loud airplane.

So cool. I am getting nostalgic. I saw all these birds live at ZRH, but almost can't remember anymore when there was no Dock A. When I was boy I even was on the old terrace in front of the Terminal (later T A), when the Dock B and Terminal B did not yet existe. Then they parked the two SR 747 on the apron and the passengers had to climb the stairs. Thanks for posting Patrick.

I was getting nostalgic as well. This movie has been sleeping for so many years. It was just emotional touching to see this film after such a long time.
Did you notice on the tarmac one of the new SWR MD-80s in the "Schockistängeli" livery? Or was it a DC-9-50?

What a nice video of good ole' Flughafen Züri. I sure would have loved to see all those SR birds in action. Thanks for sharing Patrick!

Nice movie. Can anybody identify the DC 3 at 4:00 and the Caravelle at 4:55? Furthermore there is a B 707 at 4:15. First I thought it was a Tropical Airways B 707 but 1982 is too early for this bird. Could be one of the Israeli carriers, which you could see reguarly at that time: El Al, Arkia, Maof, Sun d'Or, maybe in mixed colours.

The 707 is definitely one in full El Al colours, it's seen closer later in the movie. Arkia also operated some El Al 707s at the time, but then they overpainted the Israeli flag a bit with an all blue tail, but here you can see the flag so it's El Al itself.
I had first presumed the Caravelle is CTA, the only Zurich based Caravelle operator at the time, but then it should have the Swiss flag on the tail more clearly to see. It looks a bit like Transeuropa, a Spanish charter

But then I found CTA leased an Air Mali machine in summer 1981 (NOT 1982), see

Do you guys wanna know the story behind the SWR 747-100 taking off in the movie?

My grandparents flew on this bird via Geneva to New York. Or better said: There was an attempt to do this.
While on approach to Geneva, one engine sucked a bird or two in one of the engines. So they landed safely but couldn't go on to New York.
An quickly prepared DC-10 which came back from an African flight to Geneva was flying the pax then back to ZRH, where a second DC-10 was prepared for a direct long haul flight to New York. At the end, my grandparents arrived in New York 7 hours late.
We live below the glidepath RWY-14 in Germany and see all the birds on the approach to ZRH. So we saw in deed this DC-10 coming from Geneva with my Grandparents in it, but having no idea about all this, thinking rather the grandparents are already over the pond on the way to NY...
Funny!

SWR 747-100

Sorry Patrick, SR never had an 747-100, this was a 747-200, even though it had only three windows on the upper deck.

Horrible quality. Anyway, of course did not have cameras as we have today so then it is all fine.
The content is great!! Only noisy planes!! We've seen B747B (-200 not -100), DC-10, 707s (wasn't this a Kuwait 707-300?), 727, Bac1-11. I wish AMS could become such an airport for one day!   (Wishful thinking....)
Anyway, I think this video is a 8/10

Ok, thanks; the three windows trapped me....  

I thought always SWR was one of the launch customers for the 747-100. 747-B -as we can see on the rudder- means then series -200?

I am not sure but I think the -100 was only built in very few numbers. Only the first 747 probably for the launch airlines like PanAm. Soon they sold only -200s.

Thanks for your answer. Your user-name is programme   (German saying, don't know if you can use it that way in English). Arent't you the operator of the B 707 production list (well, with focus not on production but on tracking the few 707s still flying...)?

Sounds very 1982-like. First I thought it something like Ultravox (the intro of Vienna) but it isn't.

The music used is an ambient sound file, which is part of the video cut programme "Magic Video Deluxe 17".
The composer is unknown.

absolutely nice video!!

second plane landing seems to be an OS DC-9. Wondered about the DC-3 as well. And cool to see a LH727 parked.

Fantastic!!

I had the same problem. Search for Zurich 1982 and you will find it.

Hi Glidepath,

How were you able to convert them? I was just recently handed a box of super-8's of family movies from way back before I was born and I need to convert them to DVD. Thanks

Hi!

I just let the Super-8 movies run with the projector and filmed it with my HD Sony CX115-E.
That's it....
