That was a DC-8 (ex UAL).  Both it and the ex-TWA 707 are gone.

As for 880/990s, I can think of the following:
US Navy 880, maybe still flying?  It had a major overhaul at MIA in  
the late 1980s.
MHV: a dozen or so 880s and 1 990.  I've heard of one being scrapped;  
I hadn't heard that all had been.  Can anyone confirm?
A number of ex-Spantax 990s were lying around at Palma (I think).   
Most were scrapped, but I hear one was preserved.
