    Sal,it is just great to have you back. Each day you surprise us with great photos. I remember these cool photos you posted from the 70's on a CO DC-10. Do you have any cool American DC-10 photos? In the cabin and outside?

    I never tire of just picking a random page in this thread - I love the Western Indianhead era.

    Judging by the snow covered mountain behind the Connie's tail, I'm going to suggest Anchorage, Alaska for a location of this, and the date must be between 1948 and 1954,

    Interesting Fiji Airways picture, I will show my Dad and see if he recognizes the terminal of the first picture. Also if you notice it a VQ registration.

    They both are pretty cool, don't know if we will ever see them in 1.400, would be nice though, thank you for posting those.
