Unknown (cn Unknown) One of four DC-8-61's registered to Eastern, this photo was taken from the Cleveland Control Tower on March 11, 1972. The stretch 8 sure dwarfs the old concourse! Also in the picture is an Air Canada Viscount. The old observation deck and concession stand are readily apparent. A photo from my personal collection.

N8766 (cn 46015) I am throwing this pic out to all Opshots viewers, hoping somebody captured this plane with much better camera equipment then I had at the time! Photographed when the Concorde came to CLE in 1985, this aircraft was parked over by the brown "Hopkins" hangar. A cool subject, but deserving of better documentation then I can provide.

S2-AEK (cn 45888) This classic DC-8-61 hasn't flown in years, and has quite a colorful past. Once with Eastern Airlines, Fine Air, and others, its future gets more dubious as time goes by. Sorry about the cars and the heat haze, but you gotta take 'em while you're there!

EC-CCG (cn 45898) I was going to post this as an "unidentified" but was able to zoom in enough to read the registration and then track it down on the internet and identify it as a Spantax. Brookpark Road shot from the early 70's. Further photographic refinements by: Chuck
