CURRENT OPERATORS & THE PRESENT STATUS OF ALL DC-8s PRODUCED

Listed below are the current operators of the dc-8 and a summary of the present status of all dc-8 built as of January 31, 2004. Initially, this list will be fundamental but in the future, I plan to divide the list by dc-8 subtype and still later, by individual aircraft and operator.

In addition to the 150 dc-8s in current operation, there are 136 other dc-8s in storage, and many of these are still in flyable condition. Nearly all of the 150 dc-8s presently in service are cargo liners plus a few who are business jets. To my knowledge, there are no dc-8s still in scheduled passenger service. However, air transport international may even have a few dc-8-62cf aircraft configured in a passenger/cargo configuration for charters.

This information is courtesy of airlinerlist.com.this site does an excellent job in tracking the production lists of all types of commercial aircraft (including propeller aircraft). If you want detailed production information on an airliner, this is the place to go.

I will be updating this information periodically to keep this table as current and accurate as possible. Current operators of dc-8s – listed by customer
