I have a question:
Today as we were holding short one of MK's DC-8 was finishing his landing course in front of us, all reversers deployed.
The reverser were clamshell type, and between the engine exhaust and the clamshells, during the whole time they used the thrust reversers, we could see some huge flames coming out the exhausts, from all the engines...
I did not pay much attention to the reg number, but I think it was that A/C:

It really looked like the engines were stalling, too bad I couldn't hear it either.
Are those old JT-3 known for that, or was there any particular reason for this to happen?
