Flew everything from the -20 to the -71 for various carriers. Just curious who's still operating the type.

No.... haven't for over a year. Donated one to the Yankee Air Force Museum at YIP.

ATI's DC-8 are Combi's and they are scheduled for retirement this month. The replacement are B757 Combi's. More pax and same number of positions for freight I believe. Though Not nearly the legs the -8 have.

A few ex ATI and Astar/DHLAirways peeps just started flying 807DH and I believe they are gonna bring some ATI -73's out of the desert for a group out of the South Pacific.

One sitting on the ramp in IAH couple days ago, it look like ATI with white/blue trim.

Saw that one two days ago. Asked our mechanic about and he said it has been sitting there for weeks. I noticed the company name is painted out forward of the wing.

ATI sold it to another company. Rumor is that it has a lien on it by mechanic.
