DC-8 Original Factory Delivery Customers – Airline Summaries

DOUGLAS DC-8

ORIGINAL FACTORY DELIVERY
AIRLINE CUTOMERS –
AIRLINE SUMMARIES

Listed below are Summaries of the DC-8 fleet’s for of the Original Factory Delivery Customers. To qualify as an ‘Original Factory Delivery Customer’ the Airline must have taken delivery of at least 1 New DC-8 Directly from Douglas (not leased or purchased from another airline or finance company). There are 3 Tables which list each Airline Customer individually and if click on any Airline Name this will take you to a More Detailed Summary for that Airline’s DC-8 Fleet.

Table 1: Airlines are listed in Order from the Largest Airline Factory Delivery Customer to the Smallest.

Table 2: Airlines are listed in Order from the Largest Total Operator of DC-8’s to the Smallest of the Original Delivery Customers.

Table 3: Airlines are listed in Order from the Airline who Operated the Largest Number of DC-8 Series (or Variants) to the Smallest of the Original Delivery Customers.

Some day I would love to list not only the Original Delivery Customers in these tables, but ALL DC-8 Operators in these tables. However, this is quite an undertaking since there have been well over 500 DC-8 Operators and perhaps over 1000.

I have also created separate, very detailed tables for each of the Original Factory Delivery Customers which will enable you to see each Airline’s DC-8 Fleet listed by Manufacturer’s Serial Number, Line Number, DC-8 Series, Registration Number, Ship Number & Ship Name (if applicable), Dates Operated and Remarks about the disposition of each aircraft in that Airline’s Fleet. These Detailed Tables can be accessed two ways – You can select them from within the Next Subject: Original Airline Delivery Customers – A Detailed Listing; or when looking at the DC-8 Models you can select the
"Click Here to See [This Airline’s] DC-8 Fleet Information" to view the information.
