A rare 1974 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 at the end of the 7.5 hour overnight flight from Manila to Sydney. Flight Attendants Col Carnegie and Ken Thompson are busy and the Second Officer, David Beechroft-Kay, is looking out at the Port wing. Apologies for low Depth of Field (1/15 sec F2 at 50ASA).

Very neat effect on this photo. Nice to see the inside of some of these classic airliners.

Ohhh man! This is an even greater shot than the first one you uploaded! Great picture with its tone, DoF, airplane, airline and era! Cheers for sharing.

What is the FO doing, checking if the flaps are up? Yikes!

Imagine how old the persons on this photo are now. I would say the crew did retire a while ago.

Nice photo from this era, in-cabin shots are dime a dozen now, not so back then. I flew in this plane in 1965...

"Qantas Crew" have advised that the Flight Attendants in this photo are Col Carnegie and Ken Thompson. Also, the 'Second Officer' is David Beechcroft-Kay. Identification of this 'Qantas Crew' has been done with their permission. WN.

An absolutely fantastic shot in my opinion... You have the focus spot on and the way you captured the three crew members is brilliant.

Nice work :-)
