HB-IGH (cn 46067/455) ... an unforgettable moment to see a takeoff of a DC-8 from Sion airport. The beautiful machine arrived on a VIP flight from Moscow. Very good visible the washing water automatically pumped out just after leaving the runway.

Awesome!

To the visitors below: these are indeed CFM56 engines. The DC-8-72 is a DC-8-62 that was re-engined with CFM later in its life; originally it had P&W JT3D engines. For the DC-8-61 and -63 this conversion was also offered, turning them into -71 and -73 respectively. With the new engines, the Big Eight got improved range, fuel burn, climb performance, and it got an awful lot quieter as well. No -70 Series were delivered new, they were all converted -60 Series.

A visitor from - posted Tue May 29, 2012:
It looks like a big Turbojet fighter with 4 fake engines. Isn't it?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 17, 2011:
Perhaps they are CFM engines as found on some advanced Freighter types, e.g. ones from UPS.

A visitor from - posted Tue December 21, 2010:
Those engines look huge. what type of engines are those, P&W JT4A or JT3D??? Thanks.
nice pic

What do you mean with: Very good visible the "washing water automatically pumped out" just after leaving the runway. !?
