View Full Version : Classic Airliner Photos

Does anyone know where I can find some nostalgic photos of real classic jets taking off ? I'm talking about magnificent plumes of thick acrid smoke here in a pre-envronmentally conscious world !

I only mention this because I found an old photograph today of a Spantax Convair Coronado (CV990A) taking-off. This was about 1973 and the smoke completely obscured the runway well after it became airborne.

Those were the days !

You could try http://www.airliners.net/

You can search for aircraft by type, or by manufacturer, and go from there. There's another site, the name of which escapes me at the moment, but I'll look it up on another board.
