I worked on UPS DC-8s for 10 years (CFM powered) and am obviously not familiar with this powerplant. That is a REALLY interesting looking TR setup.

Still think this is one of the best liveries ever created. Hopefully, the eurowhite era is soon at an end...

It looks like it's sliding along the snow! Wonderful work though, never seen a 707 transporting an engine in this manner.
