Finnair photo. Uploaded with permission.This is one of several photos received from Finnair. They were disposing of old photos and I was asked if I want them.Otherwise they would go to the waste bin. How could I turn down an offer like that? I was also told that that I could publish them as long as it was mentioned that they originate from Finnair

I've understood that the photo was shot by Convair's own photographer at the time the a/c was being delivered to Kar-Air Oy. He/she has been a real professional. Every detail has been thought over!
