McDonnell Douglas DC-10 (N908WA)


KSFO - Pre 1987 merger with Delta Airlines. Western Airlines had regular DC-10 service at SFO. Ship 908 on pushback getting ready for taxi to 1R. Quiz. Where was the DC-10 headed and 2 Bonus points only - what jet type and Airline with the blue tip tail is behind the DC-10? ( not the 747) Celestron 1000mm lens w Minolta XD-11 from atop the ladder.

Going to SLC and the plane behind was a Delta DC-10?......lucky guess if I'm right.
Karl Lehenbauer
Agree with Loren Wood, SLC.

Hi Tom: I would guess SFO to DEN. Guessing British Airways Landor livery on the other tail. Hoosier Cheers

Thank you for the guessing - I am getting old and I gave away all my time tables, but I think this went to LAX- then HNL...or it went direct SFO-HNL. The Blue tip tail behind the Western -10 Heavy is a Capitol Airlines DC-8 Charter. Capitol was at SFO infrequently and I never got a good picture of their aircraft. Thank you all.

I believe you are right! Western DC-10's went to LAX for the PHNL leg. Forgot all about Capital Charter as well! As always, love your pics from the good old days!:-)

Thank you Cdub. The 737/727s handled SLC and other destinations, and now I sure wish I still had some of those timetables :) I sold most at our SFO Airline Collectible show, or gave packets of 5 away as door prizes. I didn't think many viewers would catch the DC-8.... Have a nice Christmas.
