53AB*
= 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 Passenger Versions of the DC-8-55
(and these two DC-8-53s) were made in two variants to accommodate 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 accommodated
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.
