With all of the historical detail noted, this photograph is a gem! It is enjoyable seeing a classic such as this surrounded by a major airport and its equipment of yesteryear.

Something you won´t see anymore. For a moment I thought this one was a 707-400, but it has not the RR-Conway engines but the P&W JT8D. I really miss these babys. T.B.

Hi robert. nice to see this photo on the airliners.net homepage. Wow, took in 1978, thats a year after i started plane spotting, a time when airliners did'nt look all the same! and we had snow too. the photo is a little blured, frost on the lens. it is also clutterd up with stuff but it captures the moment as it was, i can look at this shot and beleive I'm back in time standing there. i love the old b.a. colour scheme. thanks for sharing this old photo with us all. from ady, u.k. derbyshire.
