Gotta luv the Super-8's. I'm curious. Has the design of the -73 series changed much since it's induction in '82-'83?

A gorgeous night shot of one of the most beautiful planes I have ever seen. Surely this is the best looking passenger DC-8 left. Artful shot of a thing of beauty.

Beautiful paint scheme! The DC8 has always been one of my favorites! A four-engine sleek and sexy powerhouse! Just curious, why is the Swiss flag on her? Is she leased?

Quite possibly one of the nicest looking DC-8s out there today. Lovely photograph, great mood though it does appear slightly blurry to me.

Excellent shot!!! 5 stars! Love the reflections on the front fuselage of the DC-8. Hope the plane will be around for some time. PS: Isn't that the plane PM Blair got tech at JNB?

This picture is great. The colors gives me goose bumps, and the plane itself looks stunning with it's unusual engine-size to fuselage ratio.

What other upgrades does it have?, glass cockpit, new avionics?, because this DC-8 looks great. Good job Texas.

I see this airplane has a swiss registration.
