Pan Am 747 at Sydney International Airport in 1970

This terrific old photo from October 25th, 1970 was taken in Sydney, Australia and shows the second-ever Boeing 747 manufacturer and delivered to Pan Am. The plane was in Sydney en route back to Los Angeles.

Pan American Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet N747PA at Sydney International Airport, N.S.W. Australia. This aircraft was the second Boeing 747 Jumbo jet manufactured and had evidently come to Australia on a demonstration or a show and tell operation. It was being positioned by a tug in preparation for taxing out to the runway to take off and fly back to Los Angeles in the U.S.A.
