Northwest brought 5 new DC-8s on board mid-1960 and less than a year later they were looking to move them on to someone else. I can only presume the reason was to acquire the nifty and new Boeing 720B of which they acquired 13 over the next 3 years or so.
Obviously the “No Smoking” sign only applies in the cabin
I’m old enough to remember smoking from the engines AND the passengers being perfectly acceptable.
I won’t say it was a better time but I also won’t apologize for preferring the old 4 engine models to the new, quiet twins. It’s hard to run outside and look up like when I was a kid if I can’t hear ’em…
The Royal Netherlands Army had a long and celebrated horse cavalry tradition that included three historic hussar (huzaren) regiments (Regiment Huzaren 1st Van Sytzama, 2nd Prins van Oranje and 3rd Prins Alexander), dating back to cuirassier units first organized by Napoleon back in 1810 (though other Dutch cavalry units went back much further). They ditched their horses after 135 years for tanks after 1945 (building to over 900 main battle tanks by 1985), but overtime all three of these units were disbanded– though a small measure of each remain.

So very 1950s Soviet design and still so very good looking:
