Airborne Express Douglas DC-8-63 (46122/506) N823AX

Captured on Kodachrome K64 Slide Film, this gorgeous aircraft is seen on short final to Rwy 30 at Long Beach Airport (LGB/KLGB) in March 1997.

I used to love spotting and photographing these beauties, a real airplane in my opinion, the sound of and the smoke that used to pour out of  the Pratt & Whitney JT3D-7 engines when on approach and departure what a sight, you don't get that with a wimpy Airbus these days.
