HIstoric moment, fortunatelly pictured forever. A new era beginning for VARIG, its entry in the widebody club. By 1974, the venerable 707-320C were becoming small and old for some prestigious routes, and VARIG was facing stiff competition from many airlines that were already operating widebody aircraft.
