"Clipper Pacific Trader" served Pan Am between August 1960 and sale to UAL in October 1968. It is operating a transatlantic "Group Affinity Charter" to Ringway in company with Boeing 707-321 N725PA in the background.

Always great to see an old DC-8. A few months before this image was taken I flew across the Atlantic from Prestwick to Winnipeg in a TCA DC-8 54.

Brilliant, athmospheric picture. So the DC8 and the 707 flew to MAN in convoy? Must have been a good opportunity to compare these two competing designs. Wonder if the 707 was really that much faster across the ocean than the accompanying 'Diesel8'?
