The Douglas DC-8 is a narrow-body airliner built by Douglas Aircraft Company, introduced in 1958. The project for this jetliner was announced by Douglas after losing a previous competition to the Boeing KC-135 in 1955. The DC-8 was directly derived from the aircraft proposed for the competition, gaining popularity at a rapid pace once deliveries began. The DC-8 Series 60 was introduced later, with the first model in the line, the DC-8 Series 61 going through a number of modifications. The model was designed for higher capacity, however sacrificing the range of the DC-8. This was later rectified in the further developments in the Series 60.
