This was an experience of a lifetime, to fly onboard a Boeing 707 in 2006! The flight from Asaluyeh to Tehran takes a bit more than one hour and while approaching Mehrabad International Airport I got this amazing view of the 12 million people city of Tehran!!

She does look pretty rough. It's fascinating to me how far aviation has come, not only in efficiency, comfort, etc, but also asthetics!

An amazing photo, the 707 is my favourite aircraft and I am glad to see she is still flying. Love those engines!

I've flown a 707 into Tehran, and it sure didn't look like this. Tehran is one of the most polluted cities on the planet, and the first view I had of the city was on short final which comprised of the runway and a hangar. Nevertheless, the 707 is a CLASSIC bird, and I wish I saw it more often!

Hi Christian, nice picture, I never got the chance to fly in one of these (yep, too young when they were phased out), hoewever, is interesting to see the contrast between the sleek new airplanes and the rugged-looking 707's. Those were the days.

A passenger 707 flying in 2006! This plane must be 10 years older than the Wright Brothers plane! The matted aged surface of the wing and engines goes well with the look of the city. Love the Mountains on the horizen.

A wonderful shot, but feel sad for those have to fly this old machine. Look at its patches! My prayer to its safety.

Should be grounded in aircraft museum.

It might look pretty tired, but those guys usually keep their jets well in-shape. Usually...

Photographer made this shot at the right moment and it's nice to see the mountains in background. The fact that the aircraft is an old generation creates a sense of nostalgia.

That's realy a big city, but it seems, that is an old plane.

This photo is very appealing because of the sense of scale it evokes; with the wing in the foreground, the sprawling city, and the mountains in the background. Also, the colours of the buildings and the colour of the wing go well together.

Pretty sweet shot. I hope their aircraft maintenance is better than the plane washing.

Great photo! Those engines looks like from star wars or sth. :) And what a plane! Yes... maby a bit dusty and rugged, a scratch here, scratch there but that just te cover. Inside its a plane build for commercial flying and that what its doing. Boeings are great :)

In Iran you can fly these time machines just by a few dollors. So don't lose the chance! Be sure they are safe. the maintennace technicians know their job well.
