The aircraft is beautifully framed in the photo that emphasizes its size, stature and grace.

Great pic! It looks like the staircase is too short and that they had to add a few steps more to reach the doors of the Jumbo!

I wonder what it must have felt like, to see only small jets like the 707, and allmost out of nowhere a giant beast of a plane lands at your airport.... I wish that I was born in that time so that I could feel that sense of awe......

I grew up watching aircraft at Ruzyne airport during the 70es. I owe my love for aviation to that time and place. This photo reminds me of it. Happy to see it.

I was on this plane aged 10! remember all the TV cameras onboard - we were returning back to India after a trip home to northern ireland. amazed to find this on the web as i had started to think i imagined this story. Our connecting flights were then on a Dakota type plane...fond memories now aged 52. Ronnie
