Boeing 707-138 VH-EBA between flights at London Heathrow. It is possible that this image was taken on or about 7 September 1959 after the aircraft had operated the inaugural Qantas jet service to London via the USA. Photographer David Davis was a printer with BOAC at Heathrow and it could be speculated that he was motivated to photograph the aeroplane because it was new and noteworthy. Unfortunately there are no records to support this hypothesis.
