|Sounds like a DC-8. Mike. Similar to a 707, but different engines, wings, and yes, a bit more cramped. hey, give the poor throttle jockey flying you a break. Those older jets could take up to a minute from the time the throttles were pushed to when the engines spooled up and actually began to push. maybe he was having a bad day or winds to deal with.
