Golden light on this golden girl as she arrives late in the day from SFO. The entire ASTAR DC-8 fleet was stored a few weeks later when the DHL contract was lost.
Good ol' days!
one of its last flights, now stored at Kingman.
Currently store at KIGM.
The Astar DC-8 now sits in storage amongst its fellow DHL painted birds. Astar ceased operations on June 1st after DHL terminated their contract with them.
The first DC-8 of the day
"Capt Pete Blessing" on short finals to runway 24.
ASTAR Cargo 532 inbound from Cincinnati, on final to 25L.
ASTAR Cargo departing off 25L to SFO.
I have no idea whether this cargo jet is rare in West Coast or not. But I'm absolutely sure that any DC-8 is rare to me! (My first digital photo of DC-8 and first ASTAR Air Cargo)
