I am a retired Delta Air Lines mechanic who had the opportunity and pleasure to work on the DC8. I helped prep Delta's DC8 prior to delivery to UPS. My Father was a Pilot at Delta who retired flying the 8. He never flew them with the CFM 56 engines but loved the aircraft. He chose to stay on the DC8 when he could have flown the L1011 or DC10. I love the DC8 and hope it will continue to fly forever. If I win the lottery the first think I will do is buy a DC8. Great website.
