In GSO today, why so many UPS DC-8's at Timco?I counted 7. All MX related or are they parking them until it gets busy?Thanks. ZOO
As per the quaterly meeting, all 8's gone this year. No shock there.
I have flown them both.Too bad, I guess.
When I was ABX, there 8's were supposed to be flying till 2015.
I fly classic 747, and I look back on the 8, and its hard to imagine doing it that way again, but I will always say the DC-8 is one of the great planes, and I believe it runs rings around any Boeing, current or old.
But in retrospect, guys flying the -400, probobly couldn't imagine being on a classic, LOL.
Flying the -8 is similar to having your nut sack stapled to your thigh.
