Braniff B727-27C photo
N7270 was BN's first 727, and was only four months old when I shot it blasting off the gate in September 1966.  Interesting that the two characters enjoying their afternoon stroll on the ramp don't seem concerned that the seven-two's pipes would be pointing right at them in not-too-many seconds, though one seems be aware that he should at least hang on to his hat.  

Thanks to John Evanich for helping to bring this slide back to life.  The lighting was poor, and I was struggling in my effort to correct it, but John applied a bit of his magic to make the shot a welcome addition to the site.  Thanks, John!
