What a bit of DC-8 paint can do!


DC-8s by Jan Ostrowski and Nils Baker

Having already typed one pointless aviation related post, I figured one more before I head off to bed wouldn't hurt. I call it "what a bit of paint can do!" The photos were both taken this year by Jan Ostrowski and Nils Baker respectively.

And you know I never did learn what those "nostrils" in the DC-8 nose were for. Were they for bleed air? Because if they were, one could say the DC-8 had a… nosebleed! Get it? Get it? I'm going to bed now.
