The pictures of the Eastern DC-8 afire
over your caption "AC #604 leaving San Juan..." is erroneous. It was AC #612 leaving JFK on April 8, 1967. I served as Captain with F/O Al Laney and Mike Reed as 2nd Officer doing most of the work during those interesting few minutes. Check Richard Louis Newman's
art site -- his documentation is accurate and his feeling for the old bird is beautifully expressed.

My uncle flew the mighty 8 for Braniff on the South American routes. This was before 747 service to Hawaii and thus the top pilot slot for good ole Braniff. Crews were based in Miami but most of his trips included non stops to NY City. "Nine hours 41 minutes B.A. (Buenos Aires) to New York" I heard him say a couple of hundred times. These were not stretch 8s. Maybe the -62 had longer legs? Hate to say this but he said the Boeing 300s (as he called them) were the best planes he ever flew and he flew everything Braniff ever had. He was a 26 year-old DC3 captain in 1944 so he retired before 747 came online. My mother never did figure out how he got out of the war. He was a cool guy who flew a cool plane.
