Does anyone have any information on this flight and the DC-8s owner? Ive seen it here smoking on takeoff from CLE but i just assumed it was a UPS DC-8 until now.

Why would Wells Fargo operate a DC-8 to CLE let alone operate one period?

Wells Fargo is the owner/lessor - they aren't operating it. And they're the trustee for someone else - they are servicing the lease contract for the aircraft.

Which leaves us with the original question - who is operating it? It's a freighter .. [duh]

Murray Aviation at YIP has an all white DC-8-60 series DC-8 and Kalitta used to have some, I don't know if he does again or not.
