Lovely picture! This was KLM's flagship before it was succeeded by the big Boeing in the background.

The Long 8 was a very characteristic plane. I love the large windows and the clean wings that are so sleek and sharp like a knife, from root to tip. Newer planes often have large, hefty fairings where the wing joins the fuselage, but not the DC8 which is (in my eyes) more elegant in that respect. I remember them well as I grew up close to Schiphol airport. They were particularly noisy :-)
