This is a 1/144 Minicraft kit, finished straight from the box. It is the 295th DC-8 built. It was delivered to Delta as a -61 model on 19 July 1967. In 1982, it was modified to -71 standards with the addition of modern CFM56 turbofan engines. The aircraft flew with Delta until 1989 when it was converted to a -71F freighter. It was withdrawn from service by UPS in 2009.
