McDonnell Douglas DC-8-60 (HB-IDE)


One of a series of eight Polaroid photos I took on the morning of 8 Oct 1979 from a field a short distance away from our apartment in Athens. This pic was extremely faded and I have used PS to restore it as much as possible, but when a Polaroid photo sits unprotected and exposed to light for 40 years, even Photoshop cannot restore it to "like new' condition.

Although I posted some of this series of eight photos to other web sites a few years ago, this is the first of the eight that I have ever posted on FA.
