This lovely retro-jet only flew for another month after this picture, when it was finally retired from active service. Originally delivered in 1970 to Swissair as HB-IDR, it flew for a year for Texas International as N542TX, and then to Continental for almost another 20 years as N70542, before being tranferred to Venezuela - that's almost 45 years of sterling service! [Canon 7D + EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM]
