Wow go to airlinepilotcentral and click on cargo pilots, our "retired" DC8s have been purchased and are flying millitary (high revenue) charters worldwide. Why did UPS step over a dollar and pick up a penny? UPS could have been making millions on these jets instead of selling for pennies. Davis, being an airline man, should have seen this revenue service but instead sold the DC8 for scrap and now someone else is raking it in. Well at least these long range, large volume, commercial jets are now being used for a valuable service commitment. To bad UPS is using long range MD11s for short hop flights and causing service failures around the system each day. Sad, or maybe I dont get the big picture.
