This brings back some very pleasant memories of being a kid and standing on the observation deck at Logan Int'l in Boston with my dad watching similar jets come and go. I can almost smell the kerosene! Thanks for the memory.

This is a magnificent airplane and exactly what I was looking for to describe a commercial aircraft that landed safely while gliding, in the novel I'm writing...since the story happens in 1967, this plane did indeed,the trick.
Thank you

Wow, for it's age, this picture looks very recent. I wouldn't have guessed it was 40 years old! Nice work

An outstanding shot from back in the day when plane spotters could stand out on an open observation deck and watch aircraft up close and personal. Tower communications were also piped in on little speakers. My dad and I used to haunt the deck at Newark Airport. A pleasure gone the way of the Dodo bird.
