747 Luxury Liner That Was true back in The day

A visitor from - posted Wed August 11, 2010:
A rare sight indeed. One of the 747-400's finest liveries. Too bad it was so short lived!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu March 11, 2010:
Very nice picture, those were the days ! Domestic flights operated by 747s ! A truly classic jetliner !

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 18, 2008:
The shot captures the grace and beauty of the old AA "74's." My family flew on AA17 JFKSFO in December 1971, which was operated with their 747 LuxuryLiner which had a huge coach lounge at the rear of the plane which had a Wurlitzer electric piano, making for a very fun trip. Air travel has sure changed.

Amazing Picture, so hot

I.I. LOVE IT

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 19, 2006:
I'll never forget the massive beauty of the AA747's after working around them as Ramp Manager at Los Angeles, (LAX). I retired from AA on 3/1/91 (35 years).

A visitor from - posted Tue December 27, 2005:
I recently saw a movie titled "Book of Love", which was made in 2004. In the movie, they show an AA 747, supposedly landing in Orlando. The footage looked recent...even though it couldn't have been.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 2, 2005:
MAN I cant belive AA quit using the 747s

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 17, 2005:
Classic Jet , Time and Airport.... A common site back in the seventies and early eighties........Not anymore

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 5, 2005:
I can't believe that this shot was taken in 1979. It looks like this shot was taken in the 1990s.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 28, 2005:
The clarity and sharpness of this shot make it hard to believe that this shot is as old as I am. Very nice job!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 27, 2005:
Fantastic detail considering its age! The only draw-back is the cropping, otherwise a great pic, well done!

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 27, 2005:
Great Memories....

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 27, 2005:
Was it the 1200 noon flight on June 26, 1976 JFK/SJU? I was on an AA 747 that very day...and beside myself (first ride)...wow, great memories..classic beauty-just waiting to fly! Thanks for a real day brightener!

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Sat August 27, 2005:
I never seen an American 747 in my life, I like that silver body, is it an old photo???

A visitor from France posted Fri August 26, 2005:
So many remembers, this beautiful aircraft with this lovely livery

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Entire plane in photo. Clear picture. Good background. Good use of lighting and shadow location.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Very well preserved for a pic/slide from 1976. great subject as well.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Very good quality if you look at the date of the picture and nice timing

A visitor from Netherlands Antilles posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Wonderfull seeing one of those old pics again, interesting angle.

Beatiful plane even better livery.:P

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 26, 2005:
This is so old skool but great.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Love the way the metal looks on this photo and how the 47 graces to the air.

A visitor from Finland posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Why AA doesn't use 747's anymore?

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
This is a great shot that brings back a lot of good memories. Its too bad that we can't photograph aircraft like we used to do back in the 70's. I really enjoyed photographing aircraft from the old PAN AM terminal.

A visitor from Italy posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Here we are fully in the so-called "Golden Years"!

A visitor from Austria posted Fri August 26, 2005:
If only they operated the -400...

A visitor from Germany posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Those were the days !

A visitor from South Africa posted Fri August 26, 2005:
It's an interesting clash and complimentarity of colours, particularly the raw steel (colour) of the plane set against a grass green and the blue water.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Was not around in the 70's and sometimes wish I was around to see the days before all the airlines decided to move to a dual engine aircraft fleet. Living next to LAX I really miss seeing the livery of non-frieght carriers on classic 747's, R.I.P American 747's, DC10's and MD11's.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Wow what a lovely picture nice to see some old school stuff makes me hard

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Nostalgic picture!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 26, 2005:
First of all , any shot of a 747-100 is a great shot. But the place and time means alot . You got to like American to buff the metal and not paint it . Thats classy.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
That sure is an old one. nice shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
That livery reminds me of the movie Airport '75. Sweet shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Ken- Great shot from the year of the "Bi-Centenial". Gotta love her as she climbs off 13R. Great memories from a L.I. kid back then! AQ from NYC.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Fri August 26, 2005:
The queen of the skies in the livery of the best airline!! Awesome

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 26, 2005:
American Airlines should have 747-400's

A visitor from Kuwait posted Fri August 26, 2005:
The good old days, dont you love the 74

A visitor from Ireland posted Fri August 26, 2005:
This has to be one of the best liveries ever painted on a 747. Wonderful photograph. I wonder if this was one of American's 747s that went on to NASA.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Fine! But something strange on nose gear isnt? the tyre seems to be flat! ??

In September of 1971 I had the pleasure of flying on N9664(sister aircraft).It was"wonderful",true"poetry in motion"will never forget

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
A snap of a different time, when tri-state residents HAD to go to JFK for international flights. A time when air travel was exciting and rare for everyday people.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
I like the jet in the pic

A visitor from Colombia posted Thu August 25, 2005:
I think that those AA colors look impressive in the 747....

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
What an absolutely beautiful shot of the classic one! The detail and reflections are awsome.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 25, 2005:
World's best livery together with world's finest widebody!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Great livery, great aircraft and awsome angle.
What can we ask more?;)

A visitor from Italy posted Thu August 25, 2005:
It is a piece of history and still with very good colors.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Great shot of some very nice old school AA metal.

American Airlines 747, rare photo that I could give 10 stars.

AA's 747 LuxuryLiner... I had a great memory with this beauty!!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 25, 2005:
This picture is a classic. It deserves to be rated all stars. Its also a rare photo because you dont see any more 747s flying for American Airlines, especially the 100 series. Also the year it was taken, this picture is worth wild!

That American Airlines 747 picture says enough

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Nice old picture.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Top of the line film camera in 1976: $100 (and I'm only guessing); AA 747 taking off on a sunny day in New York: PRICELESS. A shot like this sure makes me yearn for the good ole days again! Beauty!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Superb retro shot without the glare that metal often causes

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 25, 2005:
It is excellent to see a rare 747 picture from the 70's.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Nice picture. Nothing out of the ordinary or creative angles

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Good shot, wonderful plane. But the theme is old.

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu August 25, 2005:
An excellent photo.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
I love retro!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 25, 2005:
It's just amazing to see a 741 in AA colors, wish they would still be around today...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu August 25, 2005:
It's a pity American no longer use the 747.

A visitor from France posted Thu August 25, 2005:
These were the days..Excellent shot of this AA 747 Astrolab from the 70's.The upperdeck was the place to be at those time.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 25, 2005:
It's a really unique sight, and I DON'T think that it's too much alumina in on shot. Wouldn't you shoot it at all?

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Wonderful photo

A visitor from Israel posted Thu August 25, 2005:
This photo is nice because it is so rare to see a 747 in AA livery!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Nice picture!

A visitor from Egypt posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Rare great livery mybe one day

A visitor from India posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Although AA livery is timeless and looks great on their current fleet, this particular 747-123, it looks like lots of metal and as if its flying into a junk yard. Too much Aluminium to take in one shot.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Even though this photo is from 1976, the aircraft and colour scheme are bith classic and timeless.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Simply amazing

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu August 25, 2005:
The B747-100 of A.A. is rarely seen and the quality of this photo is still in good quality. That's why I give this photo a 3 star rating.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Brings back memories,i was a 15 year old kid,watching those jumbos

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
I miss seeing this old American Airline 747.

A visitor from Taiwan posted Thu August 25, 2005:
Excellent shot of a vintage classic B747-100 with American Airlines.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 25, 2005:
I wish American still flew these

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 24, 2005:
Ken Rose does it again! Amazing stuff. Hard to believe something like an AA Freighter 741 has been on the same runway as today's JetBlue A320s, but it's something to keep in mind next time out at the airport. Great work.
