Not long afterwards I was on another trip to Philly, and walking around a corner was staggered to see the tail assembly of a 707 sticking out into the street - G-A??? ( can't remember and can't access my logbooks right now. )
It was G-APFP, WFU at Philly May 1975... Was the trip to Philly a revenue flight or did you ferry it empty?
