I grew up in UPS and was onboard UPS aircraft before they even became an airline in 1988. Going back to 1982 when they owned aircraft but contracted out pilots. This video was just released and is pretty cool to watch.

I always liked the DC-8's UPS used to fly...especially the 70 series which i think they flew up until about 2005 or so.

Nice vid, it makes me pine for a fully-featured MD-11F in P3Dv4.

Thanks Mace. The 8 was one of my favorites as well. It was the last aircraft I was on before my dad retired. They were equipped with Semi Glass Cockpits. For their age, they looked in great condition.
