Rare low-res window view from Lufthansa's second Boeing 747 D-ABYB at Kai Tak in 1974. A Cathay Pacific 707 is unloading passengers. Lufthansa Boeing 747-130 D-ABYB took me to Hong Kong from Frankfurt, via Athens, Kuwait, Delhi and Bangkok. D-ABYB ("Hessen", del: 13Apr1970) was the first civil Boeing 747 to crash - on 20Nov1974 at Nairobi Airport, Kenya, sadly with the loss of 59 lives (RIP). Apologies for the low quality of this 35-year-old photo.
