Two great beauties in one shot. Both the VC10 and the Starliner epitomize airliner aesthetics at its best. In the background, Kingdom of Libya Airlines Caravelle 5A-DAB departs, while Aeroflot Tu-104A CCCP-42456 sits tantalizingly out of reach.

Nice to see proper aeroplanes and not just computers with wings.

kenvid you have a point. It would be interesting to see what manner of computer assistance might increase a Connie's efficiency. I suppose here in the 21st century the relevant tech people would have ways to protect computers from the vibrations of multiple round motors.

The lines of the Starliner are beautifully captured in this head-on perspective! I'll add the Caravelle to the list of the most beautiful airliners. What a splendid period shot!
