The Douglas Aircraft Company crafted the McDonnell Douglas DC-9, a single-aisle airliner. This design aimed to create a smaller variant resembling the larger DC-8, which boasted greater size and capacity. The initial design featured two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofans beneath the T-tail, facilitating a more streamlined wing design and incorporating airstairs into the fuselage. In the late 1960s, Douglas introduced the Series 30 to compete with the Boeing 737 twinjet. The DC-9-31 design, with its enhanced performance due to the stretched fuselage and wings, was successfully submitted and purchased by Eastern Airlines in early 1967.
