DC-8 and Boeing 720 Eastern Flight manuals available

Hi all, My grandfather was an Eastern airlines pilot before he retired. He passed away awhile ago and I ended up with several of his Eastern flight manuals for the Boeing 720 (circa 1966) and the DC-8 (circa early 1970s).

A better question for Delta is if they want to sell their refinery. I understood their reasons for buying it. Its just that refineries are the one prospering part of the energy market right now, and they might get a good price for it. I'm not really familiar with the refinery, and I'm sure others mi...
