McDonnell Douglas DC-8-70 (N782SP)
Samaratian's Purse DC-8 backtaxiing on 5R/23L to line up for a 5R departure back to Greensboro, North Carolina.
The old planes were prettier, am I right?
Yes your right,the DC-8-70 series was a particularlly ellegant aircraft, along with the lockheed Super Constellations series. older is prettier.
When the DC-8 first came in, we thought it was just going to come in to clear customs, but another plane spotter heard them talking to tower prior to landing and they said they were going to shoot 6 approaches. I'll make sure to keep these photos backed up in many different areas.
Beautiful shot :-)
NICE DC-8,GREAT PIC
