I'll kick this off with an old b&w shot of OO-SDN coming in to land at LHR, 1977/8. Had a few others, in colour at Kai Tak, to choose from but this looked the sharpest.

an old one from me, taken at Stansted in May 1992 when it brought in fans for the Champions League final (might have been European Cup in those days) PH-MBT DC.10 of Martinair in a nice old style colour scheme. In the days when high fences didn't get in the way!

Dipping into the pre-digital archive from my time living in Belgium scanned from a 4x6 print. I was a member of this gliding club in 2000 and flew this on a few occasions.
