V Douglas DC-8 (also known as the McDonnell Douglas DC-8) is a four-engine long-range narrow-body jet airliner built from 1958 to 1972 by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Launched after the competing Boeing 707, the DC-8 nevertheless kept Douglas in a strong position in the airliner market, and remained in production until 1972 when it began to be superseded by larger wide-body designs, including the Boeing 747, McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and Lockheed L-1011 TriStar. The DC-8’s design allowed it a slightly larger cargo capacity than the 707 and some re-engined DC-8s are still in use as freighters.

Več informacij:

text The Douglas DC-8 is a four-engine jet airliner that was manufactured by the American company Douglas Aircraft Company from 1958 to 1972. The DC-8 was the first jet airliner to enter service with American Airlines, and competed with the Boeing 707 and the Convair 880 in the transcontinental and transatlantic markets. The DC-8 was known for its reliability, performance, and versatility, as it could operate from short, medium, and long-range routes, as well as from hot and high-altitude airports.
The DC-8 was also the first commercial jet to fly faster than the speed of sound in a controlled dive, achieving a speed of Mach 1.012 in 1961. The DC-8 was produced in seven variants, with a total of 556 aircraft built. The DC-8 was later converted into freighters, military transports, and research aircraft. Some of the DC-8s are still in service today, mainly as cargo planes.
