I ALWAYS wonder how Tehran prefecture managed to only allow the highest buildings along that avennue... and how it made possible that many of them had been painted in the same color scheme!

I lived in Tehran for 20 years but never got the chance to fly on Boing 707. Love the Alborze mountains in the back ground and snow cover Tochal peak.

Enormous city! Looking great I would like to visit Iran someday and hopefully travel on one of these babies. 707 rules.

This is truly a great shot.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 24, 2007:
You're a brave guy going to Iran...

A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 15, 2006:
The view makes you feel like your actually there

A visitor from Denmark posted Tue October 3, 2006:
This old aircraft seems to be well cared for. No dents, repairs, oil traces or dirt. Clean and glossy finish.
And low altitude over myriad of dense built, white houses vanishing in mist towards a majestic mountain ridge. You can hear those Pratt engines singing!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 24, 2006:
Unusual shot - don't see many of those engines, and that's a teeming city

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 28, 2006:
Incredible shot... too bad Saha Air is based in Iran and doesn't serve the US, otherwise I would jump at the chance to fly on their 707s! The city below looks fantastic and appears to stretch all the way to the mountains. Truly an incredible shot, and with their aging 707 fleet a view that we probably won't see much longer.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu July 13, 2006:
Everything in the picture looks classic.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed July 5, 2006:
Love Boeing 707

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 16, 2006:
I didn't know they still flew 707's. The city below looks like a giant computer motherboard.

A visitor from Paraguay posted Fri May 12, 2006:
Beautiful shot! I'm an aviation enthusiast and particularly like airborne shots from all over the world. And this one is really "crisp" and clear.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu May 11, 2006:
Brilliant shot! Sam, it´s your best picture!

A visitor from Spain posted Tue April 25, 2006:
It looks like it is flying with pencils attached to the wings!

A visitor from Chile posted Fri April 14, 2006:

HUGE city! Love the 707;-)

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 22, 2006:
Very good one!

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 28, 2006:
One of the most polluted cities on the planet, but an interesting sight nonetheless. I'd love to fly the 707 again, but probably not in Iran.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 3, 2005:
Glad to see the good old 707 still flying
