I've seen the Boeing design once but never the Pan Am one. Nice what if!

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.

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!
