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 Passanger Versions of the DC-8-55 (and these 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
