Aer Lingus celebrate their 75th birthday in 2011. A classic scene from Dublin in the sixties. The Boeing 720, top right, was their first jet and the BAC One-Eleven, top left, their first short haul jet. The Viscount was their first turboprop, actually a -700 series, the plane shown is an 803 originally belonging to KLM

Great shot. Thanks for sharing. 5* I hear EIN are painting a new A320 in retro colors soon. I hope it's this scheme.

An excellently composed shot of Aer Lingus in transition from turboprop to jet. We are just missing one of their last DC-3's here - they had gone a year or so before.

This photo captures a huge shift in aviation history -the beginning of the jet age. About a year after this photo was taken, Viscounts, the first turbo-prop airliners and workhorses of the European shorthaul fleets, were replaced by BAC-111's, Boeing-737's, Tridents and DC-9's.
