    Probably one of the most amazing shots of Concorde I have seen, This was taken in Orlando, Florida in 1982 when an Air France Concorde and British Airways Concorde landed simultaneously

    I have a good friend who is a huge Concorde fan. I have seen all of his photos,literature and models. I know he doesn't have this photo. He will probably have kittens.

    Delta DC-8, taken from TCA DC-8CF Trader at Dulles Airport Washington DC in November 1962. The TCA DC-8 was there for the opening of the airport on Nov 17, 62. Douglas press picture.

    A stunningly evocative shot, I love it!
    Good resolution seems to reveal # 801 on the DC-8-12's nosegear door, which would be N801E. This Delta ship would see the upgrade to dash 51 status and the new fanjet motors as worn by her "TCA" sister-ship, in July 1963. I believe the photo to have been taken aboard N9609Z, a DC-8-54CF, later to become CF-TJL and "handed over" to TCA on 24Apr63.

    The Dan Air B707 and Delta/TCA DC-8 photos are fantastic.

    I have never seen ta photo of that particular Dan Air B707 before. What a superb model that would make!
