I agree. Only thing missing is a VC-10.

Wow, fantastic photo! I'd become an enthusiast in the April of '72 after a school youth club trip to Heathrow. And those Swissair Coronados were probably the loudest airliners I've ever heard! Superb!

Awesome photo. September '72 - I'd been spotting for one month & was still 10 months away from my 1st visit to Heathrow. Fortunately, the Swissair CV-990's were still around for a while. Loved this TWA livery too.

Happy days!
In the 1960s and 70s I lived a couple of miles north of London Airport. My family used to visit the airport regularly and pass it frequently. I’d seen Pan Am and TWA ‘Jumbo Jets’ coming and going and been impressed by the way they towered over other airliners. My neighbour’s father was a BOAC engineer, and in April 1970 when the first BOAC 747 was delivered – G-AWNA - he took my family into the engineering base to have a close look. I have pictures of my sister and me standing by the 747’s nose-wheel. Back then, at nine years of age, I never imagined that in later years that magnificent airliner would take me across the Atlantic half a dozen times.
