I was just reading a post on the good old DC-8, and someone had said there is one stored at some museum somewhere (not surprising), and a thought occured to me.
In the future (and for some a/c right now), are we going to be able to fly these great old airplanes for nostalgic reasons even though they might be too noisey or smokey?
We are quite able to fly the old props, noisey as they are, so why not old jets?
It would be absolutely fantastic to see old DC-8's, B.707's, CV-990's, L.1011's, even old B.741/2's being flown by people who love these old timers!!
What do you guys think?
