Air transport in the 1970s - Ansett L188 Electra
I remember both TAA and Ansett Electras swooping in from the south, joining the 16 approach quite late, over Marrickville or even Sydenham in order to 'nip in' before a bigger jet. They often soared over my head, one following the other in the 2-airline parallel timetable days.
This particular shot was taken in 1976, close to final retirement from the fleet.
