Caption
N305EA lands from drizzling Farnborough skies on the final leg of a worldwide sales tour. This aircraft was borrowed off the line from Eastern Airlines, and was partly painted in BEA's then contemporary livery in appreciation of their recent firm order. When Eastern folded, she flew for Delta as N782DL, until finally broken up during September, 2002.

A very nice photo of the era. Good colors, acceptable grain esp. under these lightingconditions.

Altough I wonder, is it not rather landing, as it seems the reversers are deployed.

Great shot, thanks.
