The scene, the plane and of course the quality of the picture are simply great! Thanks for sharing this with us.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 11, 2006:
When I first looked at this picture, I thought it was a sort of preserved aircraft or something like that. Seems like it was taken yesterday. Perfect!

A visitor from Finland posted Sun April 16, 2006:
The ancient DC-3 in the background is Finnish Airforce's cargo plane. They were withdrawn from the service in the late 70's /early 80's.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 16, 2006:
It provides a referance to how our thoughts of air travel have changed, many of us , today complain about having to walk out to the little regional jets. Yet, fourty years ago, all planes boarded from the ground. Also, note the DC-3 in the back ground. No doubt this was the BIG bird of the time.

thanks for sharing.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 2, 2006:
A beautiful example of the L-188C with the (somewhat) rare Hamilton Standard propellers. The old KLM "barber pole" paint scheme is so pretty on the Electra, almost like it was made for it. I also like the contrast in technology from the DC-3 lurking in the background.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue February 14, 2006:
Not so easy to find an Electra photo showing rounded propeller tips

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 9, 2005:

A historical photo that is well preserved. The photo is very clear. The Lockheed Electra was and is a great flying machine. Nick

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat August 20, 2005:
Because it was taken in 1966 and is rare to find good "old" pictures like this one.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 20, 2005:
