Who would have thought it is possible to fly a DC-8 in year 2012? I did it through Classic Jet Tours! With a zero cargo but full passenger load, our flight was tail heavy. With the almighty power of the DC-8, the take-off roll lasted only 20 seconds and it climbed like a rocket skywards. This is the window view from my seat. In the words of the captain, "flying a B707 feels like driving a Cadillac, flying the DC-8 feels like driving a dump truck!" [Nikon D300]
