Nice photo! Last time I flew JFK-MBJ Jamaica was in a bird identical to this, way back in 1972!

Totally fascinating picture. The 707. The 747 in comparison. The jet bridge that can reach the back of the 47. Do they still have that at JFK? It seems odd that they would stop the front tires on that drain grating. Doesn't seem too healthy for the tires. LOOK how small that forward entry door is? I didn't know that about the 707. Danger Will Robinson, ICE on the flight controls ! What else...you can see the mechanic behind the #3 engine manipulating his drip-sticks, for checking on the fuel load.

There's a lot of memory in this shot. Also, after looking at several shots of the 787 I'm amazed at the size difference in the engines.

What is the airline in the background?
7 years ago
Memories of Christmas past. The airline in the background is Air France. The small doors on port side are for utilities like food carts, etc.

Small correction: the small doors, R1 here clearly visible, are on the starboard side. Otherwise a totally true comment, there was a thread about the always boarding of aircraft through the port doors, mianly L1, just the other day.
What a beautiful aircraft, I'm considering making a model of it... out of Lego that is, and it would have the fully spelled out titles of the 60's. But it is a magnificent sight. I have a bunch of Pan Am items, including an umbrella, from an old aunt who was a stewardess for Pan American.
