Old (1967) picture of Karachi Airport

Post by arshad.altaf »

Cross posted from a Facebook group called "Old Karachi". According to the caption there this picture is of Karachi Airport year 1967. Not sure if it is of that year but surely looks from that time period. Or circa 60s.

Got this info from my friend Collin in UK.

In the foreground is AP-AFS Super Constellation in Lebanese Air Transport colours

A PIA 720 tail or 707 tail

A Super Constellation in PIA colours - probably AP-AFQ

A Trident in PIA colours - Tail just sticking out of the hangar
