A busy looking scene here. JAL MD11 rolling down the rwy with Swiss aircraft at their gates as the Zurich Airport Fire Brigade practices their firefighting skills on a gasoline tanker truck. The derelict DC8 trainer next to them is ex TU-TCP, originally built as a DC8-32 but was later upgraded to a DC8-53. Before becoming TU-TCP, it flew as F-BJLB and EC-CMT. (thanks goes to Rolf Wallner for the history lesson!)
