Unknown (cn Unknown) A white top Eastern 727 pulls into the concourse at CLE on a summer evening in 1973. A shot I took when I was 13 years old with my inexpensive Kodak instamatic camera. I cannot believe that was 40 years ago!

Unknown (cn Unknown) A very rough instamatic photo, I still appreciate the scene- an American 727 taxing by the ever-present NC CV580, while a United 727 departs runway 5 in 1973.

Unknown (cn Unknown) Taken in 1973, this TWA is being buttoned up for departure. Taken with an old instamatic camera, you were pretty close to the action on the old observation deck. I sure do miss that.
