Aah! The good old days. I believe the Comet in the background had it's wing's clipped and was used for training the tug drivers.

Is that comet in the background missing a wing?

When I was a 13 year-old boy, on July 31st, 1981, I saw this aircraft at my hometown, Rio de Janeiro. Good old memories, we sure miss Braniff !

A visitor from Germany posted Sat February 2, 2013:
The airline behing the BCAL 707 is Tradewinds, a British cargo company that operated 707s and CL-44s.
In late 1979 they merged with another UK cargo company, Transmeridian, to form British Cargo Airlines, but unfortunately they didn't last a year before going bust.

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 17, 2012:
What's the airline behind BCal? I too loved the Big Orange - I never flew this ship when she was in Braniff color (singular!) but I did fly her later in her career when she was with PeoplExpress.

Really reminds me of the soar 747 in Flight Simulator 2004 :)

"What color should we paint the 747?"

"Well, you can't miss with brownish-orange!"

Great shot. Love the Dan-Air London aircraft, and also the British Caledonian to the right of the Brannif tail.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
The wonderful background make this a very interesting shot

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
I wish Braniff International was still flying. It was one of my favorites. I have flown on "orange" many times.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
