Lines Douglas DC-8-61 N8774
In the 1960s Eastern purchased four
Series 61 DC-8s. This aircraft had a fuselage stretch of some
over that of the Series 51 and it certainly shows in the above image.
Operated initially on the
- Miami run, they later were used almost exclusively on military
charters. The nice shot
was by Art Brett of Photovation Images and shows N8774 touching down at
JFK in 1971.
about Art's images go to http://www.Photovation.net.
This site has all sorts of interesting
photographs, and not just of
airliners! Incidentally, N8774 was sold to Air
Jamiaica in 1973,
