Thanks Sandi. It would be good if we still had these open location opportunities.

A beautiful aircraft and livery, and a great photo - just as crisp and sharp as the day it was developed!

Was this photo taken at Melbourne Airport? I remember these great aircraft back in the 80's. Thanks for the post. Really sharp photo. Takes me back to less complicated times. Thanks heaps.

Hi Marcus, sorry, been offline for a few days. Yes it was Melbourne.

Awesome old photo, Gavin. (Wish I was alive in these era!)

Thanks Joan. We 'oldies' look back fondly at what were great aircraft in the day, but you'll find in 30 years that many of today's aircraft will be viewed the same way by a younger generation. One of the best things though was more relaxed security. We honoured waist height fences and barriers and airports here in Australia had open observation areas such as Melbourne above. All that's gone and we're left to photograph through glass or stand on ladders or at distances to get pics - gimme the 'good old days' for many reasons.
