Those were the days when the 747s had to make a hop skip and jump to reach London from Singapore. Today it's done in a single leap :-)And yes Singapore Airlines still has almost the same paint job from 1972,with a few minor changes."Great way to fly"

Wow! even if this airport is in Dubai there are no emirates jets because emirates didn't exist yet in 1979

Wow..I work here now. I still hear stories from the old timers how the 747s would land within minutes of each other. Then would start the mad rush to fuel them using tankers, and refill then fuel again.
