Coincidence. I was looking through some of my slides, going back as far as the early 1980's, the other night. Ah, happy days when you could still get on to the piers at MAN
, like in the Balkan Tu154 pic above. And also when you could stand on the then Pan Am terminal car park at JFK
and watch the planes all day. Then the only attention was from people curious about why anyone would want to spend all day on a car park watching planes..... unless Concorde was about, in which case there was genuine interest from even the non-plane folks. I remember being there once and a chauffeur wandered over and was converted to watching planes by the spotters up there at the time. He spent many hours twiddling his thumbs at JFK
waiting for the next drive and needed somthing to occupy the time.
And photos from summers in France, at the likes of Avignon and even smaller fields.
I'll have to get a slide scanner.
