Photo Comment

A89-307 caught just as the sun was peaking over the eastern horizon. It was not enthusiasm that got me to the airport so early but a lift from a neighbour who worked there. In 1967 with my bicycle off the road, it was either a 20-minute pre-dawn trip with the neighbour or a 1½-hour journey by foot, train, bus and finally by foot again for the final mile.
