Pan American's "Clipper Hotspur" (N702PA, a Boeing 707) is seen in this scan of a 47-year-old Polaroid snapshot as passengers are boarding at Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (Rome, Italy) for a flight to Ankara, Turkey. I did the very best editing that I could with this photo. It was taken on a Polaroid camera, and this print is almost a half-century old. Anyone who knows about Polaroid pictures knows they printed instantly. To still have any type of image at all after 47 years of exposure to light is rather amazing. This is a color picture, but it was so badly faded and color-distorted that I finally gave up on trying to salvage it as a color photo and I simply converted it to black & white. I snapped this picture in March or April of 1969 at Rome (Italy) Fiumicino International Airport. This was a stop on my PAA flight from New York to Ankara (Turkey) while I was enroute to my first duty assignment in Trabzon, Turkey.
