How interesting the TriStar can manage without the middle main undercarriage

I love it! Both have huge horizontal stabilisers.

Nice comparison!! I'd say late 70s though as BA dropped "airways" on the fuselage around then, and Landor livery was adopted in 1984.

Would have thought date-wise that this photo was from the early to mid-1980s especially given the Swissair DC-9 just visible. Nevertheless fascinating photo, thanks for posting.

Late 70s for sure.

So good memories. Swissair changed from red to brown chocolate colors in 1981 (to 2002).

A fantastic picture that captures that special '70s aviation atmosphere very well. The shot is a testimony to these two great 'thunderbirds' and it painfully shows how boring aviation has become nowadays, with those endless lines of plain, soulless twins that look all the same except for their size.
