A rare 1974 low res in-flight cabin view of Qantas Airways' First Boeing 707-338C VH-EBN 'City of Parramatta'. I had boarded VH-EBN at Hong Kong (Kai Tak) for a 1.5 hour hop to Manila in the Philippines (my first flight with Qantas). This photo was taken near the end of the 7.5 hour overnight flight from Manila to Sydney. The aircraft is heading South-East over NSW after sunrise, planned to arrive at Sydney just after the 6.00 AM End of Curfew. Apologies for photo quality. (1/15 sec F2 on 50ASA slide film).

I would like to point out that I believe virgin america stole the concept of shiny plastic seatbacks from qantas 707's. :)

Yes, looking at the seat backs there's a similarity to the Qantas A380 premium economy seat backs pictured recently. I don't think I ever made it onto a QF 707.
