Very rare low-res 1974 photo of Lufthansa's second Boeing 747. This was my first view of Lufthansa Boeing 747-130 D-ABYB at Frankfurt, which was to take me to Hong Kong the next day, via Athens, Kuwait, Delhi and Bangkok. Photo taken from taxying Lufthansa Boeing 727 D-ABIW on arrival from Hamburg. 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 photo. (First of D-ABYB on ANet)

Many thanks for this rare shot. Can't believe this is the first pic of "YB" in the database.

Just a co-incidence. The First B747 I flew in (D-ABYB) was also the the First Civil B747 to crash! WN

Although the photo has a really low resolution, it's uniquely historic - congratulations!
P.S.: Is that a jetway on left bottom?
