N7089U (cn 19153) Chuck,this vantage point should look really familiar....except its 33 years ago! Here's a United 727 pushed off the C concourse with seven other classic aircraft in the background. You can see the old little firehouse and the B concourse with no jetways and the observation deck on top.Actually this photo is taken from the"other" observation area that was on the second floor of the banjo at the end of concourse C.....How times have changed!

Wow! I had forgotten about the 2nd floor at the end of the banjo! Back in '72-'73 it was like something out of Outer Limits-this big empty room that it seemed like only the few spotters knew about. Thanks for another flashback!

Very interesting. Apparently N8635 was leased to ONA from Seaboard for a time, and also wore these ex-Korean Air colors. It crashed in Niger in March 1977, which would be a month after this photo. Wow...

Good one Chris..I assumed it was UA too at first, but now I'm betting it's N867F, an ONA DC-8 that was leased to Korean Air for a time. That seems more likely than Korean Air itself.

Oh wow... love the North Central 580 and the Air Canada DC-9. Who's DC-8 is that? At first glance I would think UA, but the cheatline seems to bend below the cockpit window and I'm not sure UA's did that.

Holy cow...of course I recognize it! I remember going up there when I was a kid...strange to be working in that very space now. What a classic shot!
