Boeing 707 in Wardair Canada colours Postcard
Old Postcards showing classic aircraft of the past.
Welcome to the Aircraft section of Classic Wheels, a new site for everyone interested in preserved vehicles and historic transport.
This part of Classic Wheels contains scans of original postcards with an aviation theme to them, dating from way back when the Wright Brothers took their
first tentative airborne hops, right through to Concorde, one of the few things we in the UK could be proud of (now sadly reduced to a silent relic in museums).
Please note that no postcard image on Classic Wheels is to be reproduced elsewhere, or directly linked to from other websites. I am not aware of any copyright
on these images but if any images are under copyright, please get in touch and I will
remove it, or credit it accordingly, asap.
Below is an original postcard, titled 'Boeing 707 in Wardair Canada colours'.
This is postcard # 13 in this collection of aviation cards.
To see the other old aircraft postcards, visit the image list here and check out the
other classic jets and prop planes of the past, in addition to this one of the Boeing 707 in Wardair Canada colours.
More Information on this Boeing 707 in Wardair Canada colours aeroplane postcard:
Pier B again at Manchester (Ringway) airport in the 1970s. A very white looking 707 nearest the cameraman has British Airways ground support kit nearby so was perhaps on loan. Further along is a Wardair Canada 707, a Dan Air Comet 4B, with examples of BOAC and British Airways Boeing 707 further back, a lone BAC 1-11 is in the far distance. The green area to the left has long since disappeared under a sea of concrete, courtesy of the cargo centre and various engineering/overhaul companies that have set up at Manchester.
