    These 'old school' shots are just incredible, you have one hell of a back catalogue!

    Especially love the Braniff 74', and Condor DC10.

        Brilliant, just brilliant. It's quite interesting to see the colours aircraft wore the year before I was born!

          Those are fantastic pictures. Just as interesting, or even more so than the ones we get today! That Braniff 742 is awesome!

            Splendid pictures.

            It brings a tear to the eye - just like the LA smog!

              26 years ago - could most of those aircraft still be flying today? It would be interesting to check on the ones with visible registrations - but I don't have the wherewithal to do it!

                    It was smog in the 1980s, Frank! :diablo:

                        It's not that bad. Nothing that a good Santa Ana wind can't take care of once in a while.

                        A Condor DC-10? No idea LH used to send those guys down here. A UTA 3-holer as well!

                            That's why the high desert is nice

                            And that sure is nice to see all those long gone liveries!
