Not really the time to have been messing around experimenting with low shutter speeds to blur the background, but I guess it didn't seem so special then. Simple history - to Iraqi 13.5.66 and wfu Baghdad 6.77; all three Iraqi Tridents presumed b/u, although one fuselage survived till at least 2003 on a training ground

Amazing catch. I didn't even know IA had owned three beautiful Tridents. I know what you mean by experimenting at inappropriate times. It's when you look back at the result that you realize you may have missed the shot of the century.

It's a sight of the past, but still funny, the relatively fat body and those tiny little engines propelling it to reasonable speeds to barely get airborne.
