British Caledonian VC10

view map

I fondly remember being down at London's Gatwick airport this particular day as it was my first excursion with any kind of telephoto lens, in this case a Soligor 200mm.

We were able to park the car by the road and shoot over a low fence. Now this spot is shielded by trees and a high security fence.

London-Gatwick, 6th September 1972.

Praktica LTL ,Soligor 200mm,Kodachrome II ISO25

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Aye, what a great shot, just at the right moment. Always really liked the livery, it looks regal! ~V~ The Scan is very well done- ist DIY or professional?

I remember a couple of trips to Heathrow as a child to watch the planes! How times change!

Was this the 'dearie me' airline? LOL!

Great shot, but sad how things have changed over
the years, everything shielded from us now ...
