Re: Heathrow slide scans from 1972 & 1973

That Alitalia DC8 brings back memories - my father was PR for them and had all the press photos, big glossy 10x8 b&w. Wish I had them now. For Heathrow fans which may have missed my posts there's a bunch of stuff, 5 vols, which I posted a while back. Here's the link to Vol 1: http://www.civilianavia...

Re: London Heathrow 1965

Great photos, thanks for sharing. Wish I'd had a camera back in the early 60's but I was a bit young. Actually wish I had my dad's photos from when he was PR for Alitalia, quality photos of new DC8s etc and lots of movie stars etc. My first flight from Heathrow was Easter 1968 when we flew in a Brit...

Re: Kai Tak departure

Love it!!! A real blast seeing those colours. A common sight at EGCC throughout the early '80's, sadly missed To those of you too young to remember, and for us old'uns to reminisce , have a look at the many clips on You Tube of the landings at this historic airport. from memory there's a Korean 747...

Re: A few from Northolt 1977-8

The F28 at the end is still going.. I saw it a few years ago at Schiphol flying the government around the place. It was too far away from me to get a 1/2 decent shot of it. Have you any of the Andover/hs748's there? I flew on one of them in the 70's to RAE Beford on one engine, the capt. thought it...

Re: sywell PFA rally 1972 - scanned slides, more added

Lovely memories Andy and I'm pretty sure I was there - even more so as there's someone in one of the photos that looks a bit like I would have done all those years ago. In the first photo I see the Land Rover crash wagon - I've got a few b&w of that and the larger fire tender they had for a time. Th...

Re: 737 variants -100 to -900

Please don't ask me which marks these are as I have no idea. All were taken pre-1979; LHR and GTW are 1977-8 and Kai Tak are 1976-7. Royal Brunei, Malaysian Airline System, Air Nauru, China Airlines all at Kai Tak. Sabena and Aer Lingus at LHR, Britannia at GTW. http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr...

Re: HS125 - let's see them

Did the CAA operate any other 125 apart from G-AVDX? If not then I saw that particular aircraft many times when I was based at RAF Northolt. Whenever it appeared on the arrivals list we knew who the passengers would be, either Michael Foot or Tony Benn as they refused to fly in RAF aircraft.
