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.

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.

I didn't know they still flew 707's. The city below looks like a giant computer motherboard.

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.

Unusual shot - don't see many of those engines, and that's a teeming city

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!

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.

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!
