The 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kept Douglas in a strong position in the airliner market, and remained in production until 1972 when it began to be superseded by larger wide-body designs, including the Boeing 747, McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and Lockheed L-1011 TriStar.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.

In game the DC-8 has 9 (3 only on ATO3/AT5) variants; the DC-8-11, DC-8-61, DC-8-61F, DC-8-62, DC-8-62F, DC-80-70F, DC-8-71, DC-8-71F and DC-8-72. The DC-8-11 is the only one available from the start. The rest are introduced from the 60's to the 70's.

Variants

In game, there are currently 6 variants of the DC-8. The times they are introduced vary from the beginning to the 70's.
