I flew on a Air Transport International DC-8 from Louisville, Kentucky, USA to Shannon, Ireland and then on to London Stanstead (UK), departing on 13th December 2005, arriving in Shannon on 14th Dec, flying onto Stanstead the same day.

Can anyone please tell me which aircraft I flew on?

It was a horse flight pictures here.

At first glance, it looks like a 707 of some sort, but I would be inclined to agree with your thinking it's a DC-8. The nose doesn't quite match up with a Boeing.

To compare, here's a 707.

Also, you might want to check FlightAware. Do a search between airports, or search for the Reg. # (if you know it) and that should tell you more info about the a/c.


Hope this is what you were looking for.

I wanted the original pic to be bigger, but it's not cooperating, but you get the idea...

It's a DC-8-73F. That is what ATI flies. There are very few -72s in the world.

Sounds like you had a fun flight.

Hey Gh123,

I can tell you a few things.
The a/c was definately a DC8, and it definately has the CFM engines.

Other than that, I can't get too specific about your particular a/c.

I would suggest looking here:

http://www.airtransport.cc/atimain.htm

I looked over the whole sight and couldn't find how many planes they have in their fleet, though, they are all DC-8's. The pure freighters seem to be the ones with the CFM engines. The combis still have the PW JT-3's.

I saw one of these birds climbing out of BWI once. Awesome that these old birds are still in the air.

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

N721CX is a combi with CFM-56's

I was only going by the info on ATI's website.

FlightAware doesn't give N-numbers of commercial jets, only GA. If you knew the flight number, that might help a little bit, if you wanted to track it...Maybe then you might have enough pieces of the puzzle to get the Reg. #

Sure is a DC-8. I see a DHL DC-8 at DTW all the time. There is always a few at YIP (Willow Run)too. I flew on a few of United's, out of DEN, when I was a kid. Cool Airplane!

It wasn't a combi - it was one of the long Dc-8s and it only had about 9 seats at the back with the Black Boxes and a life raft.

Seriously now, we had some really heavy turbulence and I could swear that the fusulage actually flexed and swayed during it.

Can anyone confirm that they do this? And no.....I wasn't drinking!

DC-8-72/73s have very long stretched fuselages, and long fuselages like on 753,744,DC8,A340/A330s almost always sway and flex during turbulence.

If you're a person who isn't too good with flying, and you're at the back of an A346 during turbulence, and you suddenly look down an aisle as far as you can, let's just hope you have a couple of sick bags!

Would that be roughly the same as sitting in the rear of a railcoach, and watching the movement of the car in front of you, knowing good and well that you're doing the same thing?

It just about looked like that I suppose.
