In 1945 Flying Tigers became the first scheduled cargo airline in the United States.  Starting in June 1968, Flying Tigers took delivery of five factory-new DC-8-63CFs which were emblazoned with large “Jumbo Jet” titles.  At that time, the “Stretch 8” was the largest passenger aircraft in service until the real jumbo jet, the 747 was rolled out a few months later in September 1968.   The “Jumbo Jet” titles were short-lived, and these five DC-8s eventually ended up with Cargolux and UPS.
