Nice shot!

Most of my photos posted here are scans of high speed (ASA-400)35 mm film which accounts for the graininess.

Looking at the service vehicles in the background has me thinking this one is from the mid to late 1960's.

cliff731, that would be in the correct time period. As I said, the airport was still known as 'Freindship Internationaal Airport' Unfortunatly, I don't know the exact dates of most of my pictures.

Skyhawkrg, I have some 35mm negatives and positives from the same era... and it would also be quite impossible to affix a precise year on one. Irregardless the year, this photo remains as a very exemplary composition and subject. In short, it was good then... it's good today. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Skyhawkrg, the aircraft in the background sure does look like a Martin 4-0-4 in Piedmont Airlines livery.

I believe you're correct. The horizontal stabilizers have dihedral,(Convair's are flat). and the tail sure looks like Piedmont of that era. I never really took the time to puzzle that out before, so thanks for the nudge.

The F-27 pictured is a Fairchild F-27. Fokkers had Pitot Tubes on the wing-tips. Subtle differences between the two...

Thanks, Skyhawkrg... and the paint livery "correlated" to photos I've seen of Piedmont's Martin 4-0-4 airliners from that era... not to mention what appeared to be the "404" at the top of the vertical stabilizer!
