Lovely effects on a classic. Diesel powered!! :) Nice landing too!

 

 

My first ever holiday abroad and in fact my first ever flight on an airliner of any kind was in 1982, as a wide-eyed 16 year old, on a charter DC-8 (Arrow Air?? maybe, I forget). She was tired even then. The overhead lockers didn't exist - it was just open racking like you'd find on a bus or coach! It was supposed to be a non-stop flight from Gatwick, UK to Denver, Colorado. However, due to unexpected headwinds we had to land at Bangor in Maine before continuing on. I loved it because we got double the amount of takeoffs and landings! :)
