What a beauty! One of my highlights of the year :)
DHL (ASTAR Air Cargo) 1969 Douglas DC-8-73F N801DH (FLT DHL532) climbing out from RWY 25L en route to San Francisco Int'l (KSFO).
And you thought the 757 had impressive climb?
Classic Southern Air DC-8, build 1970 for Trans International Airlines. Moved to Southern Air in 1992 and via DHL and Emery to Astair cargo in 2003.
