Eternal Life

This is a publicity photo for the production start-up for the Mercedes 300 SEL (W109) passenger car at the Sindelfingen plant in March 1966. The 300 SEL differs from the SE (W108) by its standard air suspension and a 100 mm longer wheelbase.

The feeling of perfection is further emphasized by Germany’s flagship airline, Lufthansa and the brand new Boeing 727-100 aircraft which was registered in June 1964. Lufthansa was the third customer to order and the first in Europe. This specific aircraft (D-ABIH, Wiesbaden) was returned to Boeing in May 1975, with over 24,000 flight hours.
