Becoming scarcer everyday, it’s nice to see a DC-8 of any sort these days, and this nicely painted DC-8-71 of National Airlines graced the cargo ramp for several recently. Once with United Airlines as a -61 model, the same aircraft was caught in a similar pose by the same photographer at the same airport thirty years earlier!  Photos: George Mihalek – OPShots Contributor

I started OPShots in June 2006 as a place to share and display aviation photos without the often restrictive policies of other aviation websites. I want to share my love of aviation with fellow aviation geeks and provide a spotlight on Cleveland Hopkins International airport in the process.
