Not getting out at the present time so spending it doing re-edits of slides from 1971.

Another wonderful shot, I first saw 'WBL when it was Autair in 1968 and then flew on it twice in one day on 05/03/81 from Edinburgh to Manchester and back when it was with BA !!

More please! :thumbs:

Another great memory, you could see these coming down the approach when they were still 15 miles out - not the aircraft itself, but the plume of black smoke!

More please! :thumbs:

In my opinion the most beautiful airliner ever built goes to the Sud-Aviation Caravelle. This image again captured on the 28th August 1971 shows Caravelle VI-R EC-ARL operated by Iberia landing 28R at Heathrow. Some will have seen this image before Image1971-08-28-003FS EC-ARL by Stephen Rendle, on Flickr

9V-BBA Boeing 707-312B of 'Malaysia - Singapore Airlines'. Back in 1971 there was still some nooks and crannies to investigate at Heathrow.
