Thanks Stephen, these bring back happy memories, particularly the Sabena 707, as they punctually past over my Pennine home each evening at 6pm on their way to New York. Sabena always gave their reg as their call sign. Happy days.

Wonderful shots as always Stephen, they look like they were taken from the western end of car park 2 - I could be hopelessly wrong though! :unsure:

Four more classic types - excellent once again! Love the Caravelle - such beautiful lines with no hard angles.

lovely memories Stephen - lots of proper aeroplanes.

Would give anything for a location like that for 28R departures these days - and we took it all for granted then

thanks for posting them

Still looking great. Interesting to see they were still using runway caravans in those days.
