And the sups still get pissed if I work over 9.5...Anyway...We will still use the DC-8 'till it's had it's time-just like the old package car ever center has. The DC-8 flight crews are something else-have to have guts to fly those old machines. It's more of a "hands on" plane compared to the '75 (757) and the 'bus (Airbus) that we own. IMHO UPS is buying the machines to cover their A## when the A380 deal falls through.
It's good to see them go to Boeing. I think UPS should work with Boeing to come up with a cargo version of the 7E7 Dreamliner.
