The
DC-8-63PF (Passenger/Freighter) model was made specifically for Eastern. It
was an all passenger model with the stronger landing gear & xxxfuselage
of the freighter – but had no freighter door like the CF (Convertible Freighter)
models. Thus the PF could be easily be converted to an all freighter xxxat
a later date, but Eastern never did and always operated them as all passenger
planes.
