I was wondering how many DC-8 are still used for VIP/Corporate flights only?

Thanks in advance!  Smile

there are a handful of active VIP DC-8s. Airevents tried twice to offer a pleasure flight on it and both times they failed due to problems with the owners.  Angry  banghead   hissyfit

ATI; some DC-8s are combi's and can carry pax in the back. No revenue pax flights, mostly military, UN etc. They used to have like 5-6 but probably only two combi configured ones left, seen as such: N799AL, N721CX

Huh? This is definitely owned by Jet Aviation of Zurich and used for VIP Charters (occasionally Tony Blair has used it).
