Questions Re LH Cargo DC8s And Their Retirement

Wed Nov 05, 2003 9:28 pm


Hi everybody,

would you be able to tell me when each of the (5?) DC8s of Lufthansa Cargo/German Cargo Services was retired?

Also, when did German Cargo become LH Cargo, was that 1995?

Thanks in advance,

Daniel Smile

It is somewhat unclear, May 1st 1993 is mentioned, as well as 1995.

Nah, the 707F's were the Curry-Bombers.  Smile
The DC-8's were painted in updated GEC colors (a grey belly and a yellowish tail) from the inauguration before they got the LCAG paintscheme in 1993 or so.

Yeah with curry bombers I meant German Cargo in general, I even remember these ugly yellow birds, I mean LH yellow is pretty, but German Cargo was downright ugly ...but if I read you correctly, May 1st, 1993 would then be the date of "conversion"?
