It looks like the shot has been taken nowadays, the colors, the airliner and the sharpness are just excellent. 5 stars for this and for making it viewable for everyone, it's a true piece of history!

Incredibly crisp for an old photo. Exceptional location & aircraft attitude. Classic paint. Don't see many old photos like this.

Lovely Classic shot

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu August 23, 2007:
Wow, that is a lot of detail for a shot taken 34 years ago!! And it's very sharp too! Can't get enough of classics! Classic aircraft, classic livery... I'm sure the airline was much better back then than it is today too!
