N865F (cn 46088) First ,I have to apologize for saying that this was in Seaboard World colors back in 1976. Its in a generic white scheme with Seaboard World titles. But it is the "same" aircraft as the National DC-8 that came in the last few days....roaring off rwy 23L 35 years ago.....Seaboard had dozens of different leased planes with different colors and other airlines titles on them back then..fun times

Unknown (cn Unknown) In the winter months here in CLE the sun sets right down the runway (23L)giving you the chance for neat silhouette shots into the sun. I got lucky and timed this United 727 just right with a nice sunset...Photo color is just how i took it
