Great photo, very sorry cause I knew today that it ( she?) does not exist anymore, cowardly destroyed in Rio's Air Base!

Well, for those like me who won't be able to fly this machine, a wonderful picture like this shall help us to enjoy an age that has just flown by. Farewell 707 and VARIG!

Who was the captain??

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat October 20, 2012:
Classic wonder and time!

A visitor from - posted Mon April 9, 2012:
Feel the noise XD!!!

It's awesome to see a fighter plane flying so low, but an airliner, and a 707 (no fbw, kinda heavy controls, no "flight-envelope protection", just skill, true aviator's skill) is something even more remarkable.

Thanks for sharing it, velho :D!

I'm so proud to be the captain flying this varig
B-707,passing lower altitude over jacarepagua airport,rio de janeiro,in honor of the aniversary of alberto santos dumont,who was the first human to create a machine that can lift itself from the ground, on october 23,1906,with the famous 14-bis airplane.
the wright brothers machine had to be propeled from the ground by a slingshot mechanism so it can not be considered an airplane,like the brazilian 14-bis.

WOW! One of the best pictures of a great aircraft!


A visitor from Brazil posted Tue September 2, 2008:
Rio de Janeiro, around the 70's, riding a car close to the airport, this was the closest aircraft I could see back there, a Varig B-707. That day I knew aircrafts would be my first passion in life. It still is. It makes me feel nostalgic. Great pic for the technology back there.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 9, 2008:
Good old 707s! Amazing picture!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed July 23, 2008:
The great Boeing 707 looked great in Varig

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed July 9, 2008:
Five starts, Cedrini.
Everyone is longing for the second most beautiful airliner ever (I still think the 747 is the number one, but the 707 had more charm) !

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 15, 2008:
I'd love to be present at these unique moments of aviation, this shot carries a lot of the romantic aura of the old times.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu April 10, 2008:
Good times on the old memory!!! =DD

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 2, 2007:
As a native of Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil I was employed at VARIG AIRLINES from 1970-72, and this is the best picture I ever see on the old 707. Awesome.
R.Martins living in Chicago IL since 1985.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu July 26, 2007:
That's because it's an exhibition flight..
It couldn't land in SBJR. The runway is only 3000'

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 25, 2007:
Great shot. Great plane. I can hear it just by looking at it.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 12, 2007:
Excellent photo, but what I would like to know is when the landing gear will come down. It looks so low for the gear not to be fully down.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Mon July 9, 2007:
Man! This plane is flying so low.(Quite scary) It looks like an exhibition flight. IMO, it is a very good photo, because it is pretty hard to see jetliners like this B-707 flying that low.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 8, 2007:
Absolutelly fantastic ! Congratulations, Cedrini

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 8, 2007:
My word! the most beautiful airliner ever and in varig colours! i sincerely hope varig manages to go back to its former glory, they used to be fantastic.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun February 4, 2007:
If this isn't a great shot, somebody gonna tell me what is a great shot then. Fantastic. Five Stars!

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon January 29, 2007:
Marvellous pic.. Congratulations!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun January 28, 2007:
This shot makes me remember the good old days !! Not only a great shot of the 707 but also the aircraft carrier visual slope indicator...I beleive that was on board of the Minas Gerais (Brazilian retired aircraft carrier). Very nice shot !

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon January 15, 2007:
Now that's what I call low...

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed January 3, 2007:
What a wonderful shot... The 707 was perfect wearing the Varig classic scheme! One of the most impressive shots I've ever seen here at Airliners.net!

Congratulations Mr. Cedrini.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 3, 2007:
This is why people loved them old avaiton days, that is the most stunting 707 image i have ever seen
