Very good quality photo for 67, the flood lights add real atmosphere too. The cars are still RHD and there is a Viscount in the background!

Beautiful photo of a classic aircraft - it's so clear and well lit it almost looks like a movie set!

Great Historical shot! I see the redesigned comet windows here after the explosive decompression issue was resolved. Too bad we don't see any of these flying around anymore in remote cargo ops like the 707....

A magnificent and detail-clear glimpse of a Series IV in its handsome BEA livery. The swedish police Anglia adds an unwilling british flavour to the scene...

An outstanding tribute to an unique aircraft that payed a misfortunate toll for being a decade in advance over its competitors! The sharpness of the picture vividly enhances the restrained and handsome design of both the aircraft and its mid-sixties BEA livery. A collector's photo!

A fantastic Kodachrome shot of this rare and classic airliner. Beautiful winter light and very well preserved. A real historic document. Thank you for sharing it!

I love these crystal clear winter-night shots! Amazing how well the original slide has survived all those years.

Wow! Posted in 2008, why do foolish I only come across it now, nearly 2012! In my opinion even for today's standards a fine shot, but for '67 that must be an absolute cracker!
The atmosphere and the subject are great, highly intersting classic jetliner and airline, and the Swedish surroundings are beautiful too. Classic English delights, in a Swedish giftbox! Merry Christmas!
