Thanks Grahame. I remember flying JAT's DC-10 to Belgrade for work in 1988. Not the most comfortable experience.
The Concorde... it must be my old age but it looks sleeker in those photos than what I can remember looking through the fence back then. What an era!

Brilliant additions Grahame. Can't wait to see more.

This might sound stupid, but is it me or was the sun brighter and everything much nicer back in the 70s and 80s? What great days.

The AF Concorde was here in September 2000 and possibly earlier back in the mid 90s?

Great photos Grahame! Brings back some memories!

Could it be that 9M-MHI is still the only one of those aircraft still flying?
and still flying to Sydney & Australia?

Superb Grahame......Plenty of childhood memories there, not only for the aircraft but also seeing the old international terminal as it was back then....Dark brown bricks.....

I recall sitting in planes looking out & being able to see over the top of the terminal to see Qantas tails on the other side of a terminal wing.

Fantastic photos Graham. Reminds me of when i used to go out as a kid in the 70's and early 80's with my little hand held aircraft radio. There used to be that viewing platform at the TAA terminal as well as the one at the International Terminal. Thanks for the memories.

And then there were the cargo boys, a mixture of older reconfigured passenger aircraft and dedicated freighters.

Air New Zealand DC-9 ZK-NZD in November 1982


Flying Tigers DC-8-63 N784 in October 1081


Flying Tigers B747-200F in November 1984

WOW, Graham, are you THAT old, and I didn't know the DC-8 was around before flight was invented either...

Great photos though, and thanks again for sharing!
