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.

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

Looks terrific, I wonder how that image was kept safe for all these years.
