Mr S. M. Reeves:

I saw a couple of your pictures and any that watched your photos would be touched to be able to see so much nostalgia (what I'm not the exception).

I thanked a lot that can share these jewels of the aviation with all of us, and I believe that have left an important photographic bequest for a future generacíon.

For all that

Thanks.

In my mind, there is no more gracefull or elegant airliner than the 707. This gorgous photo captures beautiful elegance of her swept-back wings. Plus, the two supermodels behind her are not bad either!!

Great shot. As nice as the 707 was the real beauty in this picture is the Convair 880 in the right of your picture. She was state of the art for her time. Fast, sleek and bristling with technology.

Just look at this... three beauties together here. Go to an airport today and what you've got? Lots of dwarven looking a-320s (and derivatives), inelegant, ugly a-330s and plain, boring 777s. It's dreadful! I want a time traveling delorean.
