Hope the flight crew didn't eat the fish!
TWA retired the 707 fleet in 1981 or 1982

Who cares when it was taken, it's just a wonderful classic historic photo. What a beauty!
25 Stars (5 x 5)!

Sorry for stating that the date was 1986, the slide imprint was very light. I rechecked the slide using a jeweler's loop and saw that the date was 1981 and corrected the date. By the way, that was a great day, you could even smell the JP-4.
I flew to Greece many times on that bird. Many memories!
That was an old plane in 1981. Taken just before the PATCO strike.

Love these vintage shots...back in the day when people dressed up to fly!
I suppose it has to be N762TW, B707-331 ?
782 was a DC9

N782TW turned out to be a DC-9. But N762TW turned out to be a 707 (including some TWA livery on Google Images.

Flew this plane many times on a night flight out of Sky Harbor. Flight #88 departed around midnight, arrived IAD (Dulles) about 4:45AM. Great plane, loved it. Can still see the flight attendants moving the smoking area cards in the back of the seats. Those were the days my friends.
