New addition. Always great to find an Air India 747-200 postcard. This time it's the -212, rather than the -237, in the short-lived livery.

New addition - Not a big fan of the new livery, but in this case I'll make an exception for the 747.

Got this classic postcard of the 747-237. Similar to an airline issued version, this one shows the aircraft at a slightly different angle. Should have some comparative pics soon.

Just realized that one of the 742 postcards is almost identical to the picture on the Air India route map from the early 70s.

It's always great to get my hands on a 747-237 postcard. The latest addition to my collection - by far the most expensive.

The latest addition to the collection, a rare 1960s Japanese oversize postcard of the 707.

Great find, 747-237: is this also VT-DJI on its photo-flight? Also, could you tell us a bit more about the Japanese' part?
Cheers, Sumantra.

Sumantra, good to have you comment on this thread (finally) !
This might just be DJI on its photo-flight as you mentioned. The reverse does not specify.
As for the 'Japanese' part - Japanese aviation postcards are of a very distinct and irregular (larger than average as well as longer) size. This one is about 50 years old, but looks like new. Some of them (not this one) have 5 squares on the reverse for the "pin code" part of the address.
I have fond memories of my Dad buying me a full set of Japanese aviation postcards at NRT in 1986, right before we flew NRT-BKK on the way back to BOM.

Amazing memories, and very interesting trivia! 1986 was also the year in which the A310 tubbies entered the fleet, and the 707s got phased out. Was the NRT service then on the 707, or the 742 (I don't think the 74Ds had started the NRT route then, but I am just guessing)
Cheers, Sumantra.

742 (aboard VT-EBO). More interesting stuff from that flight on this thread :

You're right in that the 74Ds weren't in service then ( they started revenue service for AI in late summer '88 ).
