Great new info me - a Lufthansa DC8! It looks almost unreal! What are the other airlines you mention (apart from Delta)?

Mr. Lawrence, thank you! Bring back DC-8's, 707's, DC-9's, 727's, for God's sake. When air travel was magical, and planes had real personality.

The nostalgia value is incredible! A great era in commercial aviation.
