Heathrow 1976

Post by PaulN » Tue Nov 29, 2016 10:02 am

Hi All

Here are a dozen from Heathrow taken during 1976 , not many of these still around :( :(

The Pan Am/Fields area was a great place back then for photos unlike today :(

Thanks for looking

Cheers

Definitely the good old days, with a greater variance of types. Nice to see the Electra, Vanguard and the Aeroflot different scheme.
I think the UTA DC8's operated some flights for Aer Lingus, early 70's.
Thanks
Pete.

Great stuff indeed. Some of these were still around when I started in the mid-80s, but plenty weren't. Love the CL-44, the Conway-powered El-Al 707 and the UTA DC-8 particularly. Interesting to see the Cyprus DC-9 too - I presume it was on lease because I don't recall them buying any?

Thanks for the comments guys , glad you find them interesting :clap:

The UTA DC-8 was parked on the Fields aera ..note the open fromt door ..why ..no idea , but OK for a photo :lol:

Cyprus did indeed lease 2 DC-9-15s in 1975 for the LHR route they were N48200 and N54648

Thanks again for looking , will put some more up soon

I love a nice Tristar if you have any of those?
I have a small number of photographs from Heathrow in the 80's and 90's, including a lovely one of a Pan Am 747sp but when I scan them they look very smal when I import them into a post on here. Is there a particular site that you can edit scanned pictures on?
