Martinair’s
DC-8 History:
Martinair
Holland is quite a success story in the airline industry. In 1958
Martinair began operations by flying sight seeing tours over Amsterdam.
Since that very modest beginning they have grown into the second
largest airline in The Netherlands and now fly passengers and
cargo literally all over the world. Though they were not an Original
Factory Delivery Customer of the DC-8, Martinair began flying
the DC-8 as their first pure jet aircraft in 1967and acquired
them by leasing or buying them on the used aircraft market. Martinair
continued to utilize the DC-8 in two different versions until
1978.
