It was an 8. UPS operates the largest DC-8 fleet in the world. The only way they are going to be phased out is when they are unrepairable or become uneconomical to repair. The A300 is going to take over those duties when they occur. The DC-8's stay relatively close to home now (North America) with an occasional flight to Puerto Rico and Latin America. The 763's have taken over the DC-8 International routes to Europe and Asia. We recieved 2 new 76's a couple of months ago.
