The Douglas Aircraft Company crafted the McDonnell Douglas DC-9, a single-aisle airliner. It was conceived to develop a smaller variant akin to the larger DC-8. The initial design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans beneath the T-tail, allowing for a streamlined wing design and built-in airstairs on the fuselage. Scandinavian Airlines expressed the need for a similar aircraft with enhanced short-field performance, leading Douglas to create the new Series 20 aircraft. Improved performance was achieved through redesigned wings and more potent Pratt & Whitney JT8D-11 engines, seen in the DC-9-21 and subsequent variants.
