Schiphol, well-known for its established carriers, was also frequently visited in the 80s by worldwide 707 and DC-8 operators such as; TAP Air Portugal, Iran Air, Ethiopian, Olympic, Bangladesh Biman, ELAL, Tarom, TMA and many more. Lesser known, but surely more interesting carriers graced the ramp at Schiphol, were the silver jets of Jet Cargo, Air Swazi Cargo, GAS Air Cargo, DAS Air Cargo, Zarkani, Arab Air Cargo, Misr Overseas, Seagreen, Okada Air, RACE Inc. and many more. This second category of freighters, often run by a couple of experienced aviators mostly on a low budget, will carry literally anything. Their cargo manifests shows, besides general cargo, such items as in-calf cows and one-day chickens, heading for exotic destinations such as Swaziland or Libya.
