The
Supersonic Flight

The
Douglas Aircraft Press Release below describes the day which the DC-8 literally
went Supersonic – exceeding Mach 1. The first two pages of the release are
easily understood by all of us laymen. If you are a pilot, aeronautical engineer
or just “daring” please read on from page three which gives the
fine details of the Record Breaking Flight. The DC-8 holds the record for
the First commercial subsonic jetliner breaking the speed
of sound & may still hold the record for the Only commercial
subsonic jetliner to go supersonic. I hope you enjoy the photo and
story!
