I Love this photo because it is a Beautiful angle of this great aircraft and the dim sunlight breaking through the clouds gives it a certain almost vintage atmosphere. I was 2 years away from being born when this shot was taken but my dad was working in Ansett catering at Essendon at the time, and I remember when I was born, and as a kid dad took me on the DC-9 to Hobart. It brings back great memories, I believe it was the 'GREATEST AIRLINE EVER' !!!!

Late afternoon light at Essendon. Taken next to the terminal. From memory there was only a 3ft wire fence between the road and the tarmac. Those were the days.
