It is an historic photo showing the Pan AM 707 with vehicles of its day in front of it. It shows the tremendous leap forward that this aircraft took over the transportation of its first days.

This shot of the B707 inaugural flight of a now defunct PanAm is nostalgia for me. First it reminded me of my early job as an airline Structures Engineer of nearly 6 years up until 1979 when I moved to Marketing. Ensuring that our ten B707s were structural sound and in full airworthiness condition at all times so that the airline can deliver a "service that other airlines talk about."
And secondly, it is comparable to Armstrong's first step on the moon.
