An ORD Mystery

Sat Aug 05, 2006 6:55 pm

So I have a picture of Terminal 1 taken at night, and I am trying to figure out when it was taken. Here's what I know.

1) There are 2 LH planes parked at Terminal 1. One is a 747 of some variety. The other is possibly another 747, but I can't be sure.

2) The UA planes obviously visible are 727s, DC-10s, 737s, 757s, and 767s.

3) All but 2 planes (a 727 and a 757) are in the 90s grey color scheme. These 2 are in 80s white (orange/blue cheatlines)

So... when was the picture taken? Thanks for your help.

Probably around 1995-1996.

It would be easier to discuss if you could scan and post the picture.

I agree. Sadly, I am scannerless right now.

I would say probably around the 94-95ish range.
