The Camel is my favorite Tupolev....always like the sleekness of early jets, very easy on the eyes. Thanks for sharing Sal

This thread never ceases to amaze. Those early B707 photos are particularly stunning.

RE: the Tu-16 photo. One good looking airframe, even in amongst a crowd. Airshow folks are the same everywhere. Timeless photo in some respects. Love the guy in camo's with white shoes-center right in the photo. Summer garrison fatigue uniform, possibly?

Soviet/Russian air frames continue to impress me. I think it is because of their oversize landing gear. Makes them look durably up to the mission.

Cheers, and thanks for the great shot.

28 propeller blades spinning together at once. What wonderful memories this picture evokes.!

This may be my favourite hybrid to appear at YYZ (for obvious reasons). Worldways TriStar in full Caledonian colours. That Scottish lion looks great on just about anything. Shot this of course, from the old T1 garage in the late 80s.

That's a fascinating shot. I work with a lady who used to be an air stewardess for Caledonian, flying the Tristars and 757s out of Manchester back in the 1990s, so my Dragon Wings Caledonian L1011 is a prized part of my collection.

This reminds me that Aeroclassics still haven't produced a historically-accurate Eastern DC-7B, only the preserved one with white belly. We still need a 1950s livery one with polished belly!

On that Eastern photo, if you look to the left you could see the haze from the exhaust of that L749 that started up.
