      Picked this aircraft up on Flightradar24 as it flew overhead yesterday evening on approach to Birmingham (BHX). Unfortunately the cloud base was too low to get a glimpse of it. Very rare bird in this part of the world

      DC-8s are beautiful! I've seen a few, and even had a close walkaround of a UPS -71 back in the day, but never had the chance to ride in one.

      Saw her hanging out in KGSO recently, I didnít know that was a rare find or I would have paid closer attention.
