This was the first member for Sir Reg Ansett's "System of the Golden Jets", this slogan being emblazened here on the mobile steps. But what was the story that day around about 7th February that made the TV news crew descend on the airport?

That is not a tv camera, but a 16 mm movie camera. Check the "Mickey Mouse ears" above the camera: it's the films cartdrige. But certailly it's a nice picture in an interesting moment.

Electronic news cameras weren't invented yet at that time. Film was widely used on field reports up until the 1970s. Back then you have to bring bulky studio cameras if you want live TV pictures in the field. I'm a TV reporter like that gentleman in the picture. :)
