Any JT8D operators here? Considering the price of oil these days, anyone have thoughts on what's in store for the JT8Ds? Or any low bypass commercial engine for that matter?

Uses four of them to power their 3 Megawatt facility in Antioch, California.

Check that, quick phone call, Calpine gone.

But there is a good number of JT3D-powered DC-8's still operating too; mostly freighters?
