‘STANDARD’ DC-8 SERIES 11-55

There was a great amount of evolution from the initial DC-8 Series 11 to the final Standard DC-8 Series 55. This was due to a combination of technological improvements that became available in the early 1960s plus Douglas’ efforts to meet the varied requirements of the world’s airlines. Most of these improvements are noted in the Remarks section of each Model Number. Nearly all of the Standard DC-8s have been retired due to increasingly stringent noise standards throughout the world. However, there are still some DC-8F-54 and -55 Freighter Aircraft still flying due to special "hush kits" being installed on their engines which has reduced the noise they emit to legal levels – in some parts of the world – primarily Africa and South America.

SUPER‘ DC-8 SERIES 61-63
(All DC-8 Super 60 Series Aircraft were Domestic & Intercontinental Versions)

The DC-8 Super 60 Series Aircraft gave the DC-8 a "new lease on life" in the mid-1960s and has subsequently made it possible for the conversion to the Super 70s Series Aircraft – most which are still flying today (See Super 70s section below). The DC-8-61 extended the DC-8-55 fuselage length by 36.5 feet (11.13 Meters) while retaining the basic engines & wing of the DC-8-55. This dramatically increased the passenger capacity and was optimal for medium range flights such as New York – San Francisco or West Coast USA – Hawaii. The DC-8-62 combined a short extension of the Series 55 fuselage of 80 Inches (2.03 Meters), along with a 36 inch (.91 Meter) extension of each wing tip (to reduce drag and increase fuel capacity), and with a new aerodynamically superior engine pod to create an -Ultra- Long Range Aircraft. The DC-8-62 enabled nonstop flights never before possible such as Europe to the USA’s West Coast with a full payload. The DC-8-63 combined the benefits of the longer stretched fuselage of the DC-8-61 and the longer range refinements of the DC-8-62 plus more powerful engines to create a Long Range, High Capacity Airliner which was useful on many of the world’s long haul routes which need more passenger and/or cargo capacity. All DC-8 Super 60 Series Aircraft were equipped with Pratt & Whitney Turbo Fan Engines and were available in Passenger, Combination Passenger/Freight (CF) and All Freight (AF) Versions. In addition to the 110 Super 60s DC-8s which were converted into Super 70s Models, there are still quite a few Super 60s DC-8s which have had "hush kits" installed on their engines and thus enabling them to continue on flying today – even with the more strict noise limitations in place.

SUPER‘ DC-8 SERIES 71-73


All DC-8 Super 70s Aircraft are versions of the Super 60s Aircraft which have been refitted with new General Electric/Snecma CFM56-2 High Bypass Turbo Fan Engines & New Pylons. The new engines burn less fuel, have more power to take-off on shorter runways & climb to higher initial cruise altitudes and have increased the DC-8’s Maximum Range. Most importantly, the new engines make substantially less noise (up to 70% less) than the older engines & thus have met the progressively more strict noise regulations which have gone into effect in the 1980s, 1990s and the New Millennium. Other Optional upgrades for the Super 70s DC-8s included a newer, more efficient pressurization & air conditioning system; addition of an Auxiliary Power Unit on board to provide both electrical power and air supply for engine starting
(while all earlier DC-8 Versions require Ground Power & Air Supply Equipment);

Updated Avionics in the cockpit (to state-of-the-art "Glass Cockpits") and an Updated Cabin Cabin Interior. All of these modifications and upgrades have enabled the DC-8 to remain in productive service to this day and they are expected to safely ‘soldier on’ until 2010 and later!
Please note that all DC-8-70 model subtypes match exactly to the DC-8-60 model subtypes which they were upgraded from: DC-8-61 becomes DC-8-71, DC-8-62AF becomes DC-8-72AF, DC-8-63CF becomes DC-8-73CF, etc.
