Subsequently Painted It In Their Final Colors Before Retiring Their DC-8-21’s
(and Thus This Model). I Acquired it on July 19, 2002 from Roger
Who Was Very Generous In Selling Me This Wonderful Piece of United’s
History! I Am Also Grateful To My Partner Bob For Fixing The Lighting, My Friend
Lenny For Helping Me With Some Replacement Parts, My Mother For Helping Me With
Some Minor Restoration and Finally My Friend Frank Samba Who Encouraged Me About
This Model From The Beginning.
