An excellent picture of this beautiful beast! The atmosphere at '70s Schiphol is nicely captured. I remember seeing this plane (or one of its sister ships) at AMS as a small boy, while I was standing along the Zwanenburgbaan (18C-36C) with my dad around 1977. Or actually, I recall seeing a Spantax plane that puzzled me: 'hey...that wasn't a 707, but it wasn't a DC-8 either... what plane was that?" It must have been a CV-990 that I saw! One thing I also remember about it is the phenomenal noise! Those were the days!
