= When Douglas made the DC-8F-54, DC-8F-55 & DC-8-55 models they were able
to push the aft bulkhead further back into the tail and thus increase the cargo
and/or passenger capacity. The Passanger Versions of the DC-8-55 (and two DC-8-53s)
were made in two variants to accomodate airline requests. The first variant left
the aft bulkhead location & interior the same as in earlier DC-8 variants
and was designated by Douglas as the ‘L’ for "less aft bulkhead." This
variant was ordered by Garuda, Japan Air Lines & KLM. The second variant included
the relocation of the aft bulkhead further back & thus increased the interior
size which accomodated up to 189 passengers (up from 179). This variant was designated
by Douglas as the ‘AB’ for "aft bulkhead" (extension) and was ordered
by SAS (DC-8-55) & VIASA (DC-8-53). If you would like to see a Complete List
of Technical Information for All DC-8 Variants Please Click on the ‘DC-8 Technical
Information’ Link on my Home Page.
