Very rare low-res window view (of retracting fowler flaps) from Lufthansa's second Boeing 747, departing Frankfurt in 1974. Photo taken from a rear port-side seat in Lufthansa Boeing 747-130 D-ABYB, which was taking me to Hong Kong via Athens, Kuwait, Delhi and Bangkok. D-ABYB ("Hessen") was the first civil Boeing 747 to crash - on 20Nov1974 at Nairobi Airport, Kenya, sadly with the loss of 59 lives (RIP). Apologies for the quality of this 35-year-old photo.
